Extremely realistic drama!
28 August 2001 | by gazineo-1See all my reviews

Realistic, poignant, almost crude story related with a real - life fire that destroy completely a popular fair located in Salvador, capital of the State of Bahia in Brazil, in the beginning of the sixties. The movie focuses its view on the lives of the poor merchants, prostitutes, sailors and other kind of special population who swarmed the place until its destruction by the fire. The most impressive work of Roberto Pires where he develops a convincing and passionate style with some resemblance with the style of other great directors like Vitorio de Sicca. Great performances by Helena Ignez and Geraldo Del Rey. One of the most estimated Brazilian movies of all time.
