On the contrary to Indian movies, Brazilian movies are full of pain, struggle, and tears. These movies deeply reflect the history of their country, uncovering all the problems which exist even upon today. They were recommended to me by an architect from Brazil I’ve met in Lithuania.
Central Station (1998)
“An emotive journey of a former school teacher, who writes letters for illiterate people, and a young boy, whose mother has just died, as they search for the father he never knew.”
City of God (2002)
“Two boys growing up in a violent neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro take different paths: one becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer.”
The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)
“The dramatization of a motorcycle road trip Che Guevara went on in his youth that showed him his life’s calling.”
