Movie Details

The country of Brazil is the real star in this Dutch-made drama (in Portuguese). It is based on a book by Odylo Costa-Filhos. When Joao (Joffre Soares), a much older man, marries a much younger woman (Ana Maria Miranda), he is asking for trouble if he cannot contain his jealousy. Soon after their marriage, they have a nasty argument. Leaving his wife, Joao goes off into the jungle in search of riches, and returns after four years. In this case, absence has not made the heart grow fonder. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
