Overview

This $1 million Brazilian feature, co-directed by Walter Salles (handling the camera) and Daniela Thomas (handling the actors), is another in the "2000 Seen By..." series of Millennium-themed films co-produced by France's Haut & Court. As Millennium parties get underway in Rio, Joao (Luis Carlos Vasconcellos) escapes from jail by murdering his cellmate Pedro and slipping away during the confusion. Meanwhile, speech therapist Maria (Fernanda Torres) finds a note indicating that her lover Pedro (Carlos Vereza) has moved out. With her telephone broken, she begins wandering the confetti-filled streets in search of a working phone. Joao heads into the hills to get revenge on his betrayer, but eventually Joao and Maria intersect. Shot in one week, this film was shown at 1998 film festivals (Locarno, Toronto).
