8 / 10 (1694)


Bitter former schoolteacher Dora writes letters for illiterate people in Rio de Janeiro’s main railway station. One day, the son of one of her clients is left alone when his mother is killed in an accident. Reluctantly taking him in, Dora joins the boy on a road trip to find his long-missing father.

MUBI's take

Carried by superb performances, the characters of this epic yet tenderly touching road trip might be dispossessed, but are determined. Delivering a message of hope and compassion, this now-classic Brazilian drama—tinted with neo-realism—won the Best Foreign Film Golden Globe & Berlin’s Golden Bear!
