Synopsis

Áurea, a solitary teacher, starts a singular relationship with a young man with whom she has a chance encounter. A sensitive soul, she finds herself attracted to his moving beauty which compels her to lose herself…

Our take

Little known in the United States, director Júlio Bressane is a key figure of Cinema Marginal and one of the most exciting talents of Brazilian cinema. Here, Bressane re-imagines the Greek myth of Endymion as a sexy, mysterious, and exploratory encounter between an older woman and a younger man.
