Breno Moroni in Manoushe


1998 NR

At the funeral of a Gypsy (Breno Moroni), his widow (Drica Moraes) recalls their life together in this Felliniesque fantasy from Brazil. Packed with imagery reminiscent of the Brothers Grimm, medieval European forest legends, carnivals and peyote hallucinations, this tale takes place in woods that are full of characters both enchanting and grotesque. As the woman muses over her adventurous courtship, the Gypsy clan dances through the night.
