So Fine!
28 November 2002 | by EmerencianoSee all my reviews

More a documentary than anything else, this short black and white movie is enchanting due to the way it's done: no talking and there's just a drumming song playing all through the 20 minutes it lasts. The images show how tough life can be in a poor region. However art and beauty may overtake misery for some time, and that's what we see in "Aruanda". This movie was made in Paraíba, one of Brazilian 26 states and also the state I live in, so I think of proud of that.
