Ilana Kaplan in Margarette's Feast

Margarette's Feast

2003 NR

Renato Falcao's black-and-white silent film paints an intimate portrait of Brazilian society at the beginning of leftist rule. After being let go from his job, factory worker Pedro (Hique Gomez) is given a suitcase full of severance pay. Brazilian music moves the romantic story along as Pedro throws caution to the wind and sets off on a grandiose spending spree, eventually throwing a lavish birthday feast for his wife, Margarette (Ilana Kaplan).
