Carlos Diegues – Chuvas de Verão AKA Summer Showers (1978)

70-year-old widower living in a poor Rio de Janeiro suburb falls in love again when he finds a woman of approximately the same age.

“‘The life isn’t like the river that flows tirelessly nor like the sun that goes and comes back everyday. The life is like a summer shower, sudden and transient, that evaporates during the falling.’
When Isaura (Miriam Pires) reads this quote to Afonso (Jofre Soares), the viewer is already submerged in “Summer Showers” (1978), Carlos Diegues’ masterpiece. And I don’t use the word “masterpiece” mistakenly: the magistral ability in screenwriting, directing and cinematography, aside from the great interpretative effort, makes this film one of the best from Brazil.”
(Andrea Ormond)
