Product Description

Mutum (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Thiago is a sensitive and imaginative boy living on a small, hardscrabble farm in a remote region of Brazil. His life is filled not only with curiosity and youthful discovery, but also the reality of his parent's unhappy marriage and his father's abuse—all of which are one day changed by a chance encounter and unexpected gift.

Director Sandra Kogut, in her poetic adaptation of the Brazilian short story Campo Geral, focuses on minute details of rural life to tell a bittersweet story of one boy's coming-of-age amidst events both great and small.

"An attractive mood piece repping a narrow rural world as seen through the eyes of a 10-year-old, 'Mutum' captures the child's bewilderment about adult life."
–Variety

"A stunning glimpse into life in rural Brazil. … To be sure, the film is dramatic, but there are moments of joy…that are so pure and innocent you'll feel like crying. The film is richly layered with religious and cultural themes, and the ending is one of the best I've seen in a very long time." –Getafilm

Mutum is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

An attractive mood piece repping a narrow rural world as seen through the eyes of a 10-year-old, Mutum captures the child's bewilderment about adult life. --Variety

A stunning glimpse into life in rural Brazil... To be sure, the film is dramatic, but there are moments of joy... that are so pure and innocent you ll feel like crying. The film is richly layered with religious and cultural themes, and the ending is one of the best I ve seen in a very long time. --Getafilm

One of the gems of this year's Lincoln Center Film Series, Brazil's Mutum is the very model of how to make a movie about a poor, rural family - and make it consistently fascinating, real, vital and important. This remote place is so stunningly brought to life that we soon become a part of it. Mutum, without ever raising its voice, has us hanging on every detail. This is a movie I could easily see again. And again. --GreenCine.com

A heartwarming story of a child who is too young and somewhat sensitive to the world around him. Living on a poor and desolate Brazilian farm, Mutum is faced with many unexplained situations--his dog taken away; his brother and best friend Felipe dies; his abusive father forcing him to work in the fields. Then as the movie nears its end we see his mother giving him away, leaving us with an ending filled with doubt and anticipation, leaving it up to us, I guess, to decide on the outcome of his future. Seeing the love and respect the mother had for him, however, I would like to think her decision may be somewhat wise; that maybe she was able to see in him the potential of a great future much better than if he had stayed on the farm. An outstanding film!

I liked that this is an international movie. The children in it are adorable and great at acting. The only problem is that the story plot is kind of slow and there isn't much too it.

If you enjoy movies that provide a glimpse of a little exposed or talked about place in the world, this is an interesting look at an impoverished family living in a remote village in Brazil.
