Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures
The 1940s. Johann, a German escaping the World War, is selling aspirin in rural Brazil – and showing movies on a portable projector to attract the punters. On his travels he encounters a local, Ranulpho, and offers him a job as his assistant. Together they bicker, laugh, share stories and slowly disclose information about their lives. Gomes’ assured road movie is a handsomely shot study of an unlikely friendship in compromised times.
