Movie Reviews

Great erotic poems from Carlos Drummond de Andrade
ondaalta | brazil | 02/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary brings a very original approach to Carlos Drummond de Andrade's erotic poetry book "O AMOR NATURAL". Heddy Honigmann's film allow us to apreciate how much the poet is still loved by brazilian people. Many of the interviewed readers are anonymous citizens from the streets of Rio de Janeiro, there are also some talented and well known actors from Brazil, like Maria Clara Machado, Sérgio Vioti and Joana Fomm. The documentary itself isn't quite exact (Carlos Drummond de Andrade did want to publish O Amor Natural but he died before). Subtitle translations sucks with many errors, but you won't miss the real meaning. It is a very good movie to watch more than once, and you'll laugh a lot with good poetry.
Unfortunately producer Peter Van Hustee never payed copyrights for Carlos Drummond de Andrade's work. Try a preview in YouTube..."

"Drumond de Andrade in his private-erotic times created this set of poems that deal with love and which are told by elderly people who remind us that we are getting older, nonetheless our dreams and desires are alive and we are still in search of eternal love. Great doc-movie."
