Primeriro de Abril, Brasil


The female residents of a boarding house in this political allegory battle to achieve some freedom from the harsh dictates of the aged manager. Archival footage from television and newsreels from the period of the 1964 military coup in Brazil liven the proceedings, and make explicit the parallels between the girls' efforts and the overall national situation. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
