Storyline

Diogo Álvares, a Portuguese map illustrator, reaches the Brazilian coast, after his caravel sinks. He is saved by the Indian chief Itaparica and his two daughters, Paraguaçu and Moema. They call him Caramuru and together they engage in a happy love triangle. But the chance to return to Portugal arises, and it is clear this amoral arrangement cannot last.

Hilário Way to Tell the History of Brazil
20 June 2018 | by maralvimmmSee all my reviews

A humorous way to tell the story of Brazil, a film with our way Macunaíma de ser, a film that makes you know some facts in a bizarre way, being a pleasant and engaging film.

The filmmaker is the Pernambuco Guel Arraes, who develops exquisite works, many on TV and some pearls in the cinema, started with an already commented the O Auto da Compadecida 2000, one a hilarious story and the other a novel similar to this one of this post, a hilarious film, great called: Lisbela and the Prisoner (2003). The protagonist is the actor who also directs some works like "The Clown" and acted in an international film called Trash: The Hope Comes from the Garbage (2014).
