Subject: Could you tell me this movie's title?
IP: Logged

Message:
I viewed many films at your Cinema Novo retrospective at the MoMA
several years ago. For years, I have had films in my head that I
really
enjoyed, but I could not remember the titles until I happened to find
your website today. What a relief!
There was one film in particular, however, that I remember fondly that
I
did not see on your description. The basic plot is that a young German
girl is hired by a rich man under the auspices of tutoring his son in
German, when in reality it is an arranged seduction so that the boy
learns a lesson not to have relationships with women below his social
standing. Could you please tell me the title of this film?

When I saw the films in your retrospective, I knew little about
Brazilian culture or language. I would really like to view these films
again, but "Bye Bye Brazil" and "Dona Flor" seem to be the only two
titles commonly available. Do you have any information regarding the
availability of these films on VHS or DVD? (I do have a multi-region
DVD player if there is a site where they are available for order from
Brazil.)

Thank you for your help and for putting together the fine film
retrospective.

I think the tittle is "Lição de Amor". It´s basead on the book "Amar, Verbo Intransitivo" by Mario de Andrade (1927)

So you like Brasilian movies. Have you seen these 2? "Where the River Runs Black" & "Central Station". Both are excellent family type movies. THey can be got on tape.

those prices are way too high. I got Central Station for $12.95 Canadian. Others more than 50% less than your prices. You are being rippedcoff

Gwenyth -

Where did you get your multi-region DVD player? How many regions can you get?? All of them? Was it very expensive?

Thanks,
