RAT FEVER [A Febre do Rato]
The latest from visionary provocateur Cláudio Assis (BOG OF BEASTS, Rotterdam 2007 Tiger winner) is the story of an almost- love affair between dissolute street poet/pamphleteer/activist Zizo and Eneida, a strong-willed girl from his Recife neighborhood. Zizo is instantly smitten; for her part Eneida is cautious about getting too close to Zizo and his ragtag circle of bohemians and down-and-outers. Shot in gorgeous black and white by talented cinematographer Walter Carvalho, this is the rare cinematic experience that is equally thought-provoking and erotic, with rough-hewn good humor to boot. Official Selection, 2012 Rotterdam Film Festival.
DIR/PROD Cláudio Assis; SCR Hilton Lacerda; PROD Júlia Moraes. Brazil, 2011, b&w, 110 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles. NOT RATED S V D L
