BRAZIL, Germany | 139 minutes | 2019
Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s. Eurídice and Guida have been raised in a conservative household. One night after a clandestine outing with her lover, Guida fails to return, leaving behind only a letter. With their destinies now at odds, the sisters do everything in their power to find each other. Adapting Martha Batalha’s eponymous novel with great sensitivity and impressive narrative force, Karim Aïnouz (Madame Satã) scooped the Un Certain Regard prize at this year’s Cannes. A wrenching epic about two women, elevated by stunning performances from its two leads, Carol Duarte and Julia Stockler, and borne by the power of an unbreakable bond.In collaboration with theConsulate General of Brazil in Montreal."Anyone already familiar with Aïnouz’s work will know to expect a florid sensory experience, but even by the Brazilian’s standards, this heartbroken tale of two sisters separated for decades by familial shame and deceit is a waking dream, saturated in sound, music and color to match its depth of feeling." Variety
