LINHA DE PASSE – Line of Passage
For The Cannes International Film Festival competition on Saturday, May 17th
LINHA DE PASSE (1h48) Directed by Walter Salles, Daniela Thomas
This is a story about four brothers from a poor family living in urban jungle of São Paulo. They need to fight to follow their dreams in the Brazilian ghetto.
This year in Cannes there’s a strong South American contingent. Walter Salles, the great filmmaker whose The Motorcycle Diaries I adored, should definitely have a Palme d’Or.
In 1998, his small drama Central Station came out of nowhere to become sensation and got two Oscar nominations. Walter Salles’ Behind The Sun was nominated for Golden Globe Award.
LINHA DE PASSE is co-directed with Daniela Thomas from a script she wrote with George Moura (Moro No Brasil)
Here is the official movie synopsis:
Sao Paulo. 20 million inhabitants, 200 kilometers of traffic, 300,000 messengers on motorcycles.
At the heart of one of the toughest, most chaotic cities in the world, four brothers try to reinvent themselves in different ways.
With the backdrop of Brazil in a state of emergency, every single one is looking for a way out.”
