Aquarius (Filho)


Kleber Mendonça Filho

In Recife, a sexagenarian widow stands alone against the developers who want to tear down the building where she has always lived to make a modern megacomplex. Sônia Braga, an icon of Brazilian cinema since the 1970s, has lost none of her insolent sensuality: she portrays a formidable character trying to stop the soul of her neighbourhood being flogged off to the highest bidder. In his second feature, Kleber Mendonça Filho reaffirms his attachment to his hometown, placing it at the heart of an unabashedly regional cinema.
