olá, hello! what’s up? 

a few months ago I started teaching Portuguese for foreigners on my blog, so now I decided to make a list with the best Brazilian movies (in my opinion). I hope you like them! 

Que horas ela volta? (2015)

Title translations:  The Second Mother (United States) /  Une Seconde Mère (France)

 It’s a story about overcoming social inequality. Regina Casé (main actress) was very nice in this movie! trailer here.  

Aquarius (2016)

Omg, this is my favorite one ever! I watched last week and my heart almost stopped beating. Aquarius was Cannes nominated and winner in other countries. Besides being a story about a strong woman who fights for her rights, Aquarius will show you a little about Recife (a city in Brazil) also our popular music.  trailer here.

Estômago (2007)

Do you want to feel hungry? You must watch it! Raimundo Nonato (João Miguel , actor) finds an alternative way, a life of his own: he cooks in order to survive and find a place in society. It’s such amazing movie! It’s in top 100 brazilian movies of all time. trailer here.

Abril despedaçado (2001)

Title translations: Behind the Sun (United States)

Well, I think probably you will cry but it is a essential movie to watch at least once in your life. Believe me! trailer here.

Central do Brasil (1998)

Title translations: Central Station (United States)

An emotive journey of a former school teacher, who writes letters for illiterate people, and a young boy, whose mother has just died, as they search for the father he never knew. It is a poetry movie, that’s all, folks. trailer here.
