João is a fifty-two year old actor who lives with his seventy-two year old mother, Celina. He spends his time between his work at night as a cross-dresser in small gay bars and the roles he portrays in modest plays, movies and television shows. Tormented and haunted by ghosts from his past, João’s day-to-day life starts to merge with the reality in which he lives and the fiction he is interpreting.

Artist as cultural adhesive, compulsive, spacious, even better Brazilian.

To some extent are we all not creators of a persona that reflects, but is not the other more

genuine self which is ever more, or less elusive? Are not movies, and novels integrel

cultural events created as enablers in that search. Excellent piece of film realism

Inexplicable, irresistible, brilliant, stupefying. See it! See it!
