A family migrates from the desolation of their homeland in Northeast Brazil, in the hopes of finding more hospitable living conditions. Their fates are dramatized with the deliberation and intimacy of neo-realism, resulting in the sensitive portrait of a family's struggle to escape the confines of poverty. 115 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Portuguese; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailer; bonus short. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vidas Secas August 22, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even after all this time, this is a harrowing film of suffering brought on by greed. The north-east of Brazil hasn't changed much.

Buy this film and find out about Brazil's arid and poor interior. Graciliano Ramos's book is brought to life.
