Remarks and general Information in German: Andrucha Waddington has assembled some of the greatest talent in Brazil to relate this 19th-century saga of frustration, perseverance and redemption. Two of the country's finest actresses, Fernanda Montenegro and her real-life daughter Fernanda Torres play a mother (Aurea) and daughter (Maria) abandoned in the wilds of northeast Brazil. Aurea's demented husband Vasco (famed director Ruy Guerra doing a turn in front of the camera) drags his family to the Maranhão region, a stunningly beautiful desert of shifting sand dunes and vast horizons, under the magnificent delusion that he can grow crops there. But Vasco dies soon after arriving. Thinking they are now free, the women attempt to return home. When an expedition of English scientists passes through and American warplanes fly overhead, they seem like strange emissaries from a distant world. Although thwarted in their original mission, the women find their lives punctuated by explosions of love, passion and fulfillment. In the end, the three generations of women - all played by Montenegro and Torres - have experienced a range of emotions as vast and beautiful as the desert itself. (Filmfest Motovun)
