About the Movie
When his mother is killed in front of Rio de Janeiro's central station a young boy turns to a middle-aged woman for companionship.

As the two make their way through Brazil's rugged interior, they gradually form a bond that sustains them through emotional loss.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Salles directs simply and watchfully, with an eye that seems to penetrate all the characters who are encountered on Dora's and Josue's journey.
Fresh: A richly tender and moving experience.
Fresh: [Salles'] imagery, like his storytelling, is clear, often unaffectedly lovely, and quietly, powerfully haunting.
Fresh: As beautiful as it is wrenching.
Great sad movie with brilliant performance of Fernanda Montenegro. Beautiful music within the whole movie. For those who likes something different from the Hollywood-standard Films!!!
Just the best...
Great movie, not in widescreen
Great movie. HOWEVER, This movie is supposed to be in the widescreen format, not 4x3 standard format. For that reason alone, I decided to purchase this from That Big Bad Online Retail Store for $15.00. Apple's loss. If you're going to release a movie, Apple, at least get the format correct.
