| The life and times of a great Brazilian writer
This is one of the greatest Brazilian films of all times. Nelson Pereira dos Santos did a brilliant job in writing a script from Graciliano Ramos' memoirs from his novel "Memórias do Cárcere". It is a must to all those interested in recent Brazilian history. Graciliano was a perfectionist in his writings and had a perfect domain of Portuguese language. The plot shows his life from a school teacher in the poverty-stricken north-eastern state of Alagoas until his imprisonment, for political reasons, accused of links with the unsuccessful attempt of leftist military and intellectuals to seize power in 1935. A lesson of coherence !
