Pacarrete Luiz Alves 205 of 272 Mediu 0pjs
An eccentric old woman dances to the beat of her own drum in Allan Deberton’s poignant debut feature. There is a flavour of Almodovar-style melodrama in the story of Pacarrete (the sublime Marcelia Cartaxo), a former ballet dancer who lives in northeast Brazil. As a gift to the citizens of Russas, she has decided to dust off her tutu, slip on her ballet slippers and perform a classic dance for the city’s 200th anniversary celebrations-whether they want it or not. A broad, comedy turns increasingly dark and plaintive as the true nature of Pacarrete’s daily life becomes apparent.
