O Toque do oboe Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In a story reminiscent of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), a Brazilian drifter named Augusto with a terminal heart condition appears in a nameless Latin American town armed only with an oboe. The town's inhabitants do little but fight, die, and attend funerals -- that is, until Augusto enthralls the townsfolk with his haunting melodies. Soon an elderly man thought to be dead springs to life, while a bickering couple finds love in the warm glow of his music. For the first time that anyone can remember, the town comes alive. The old movie theater starts up again and flowers mysteriously start to bloom. O Toque do Oboe was screened at the L.A./AFI Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
