If you’ve ever read Lispector’s text, Amaral’s film is a must-see. You may be wondering how Amaral could possibly manage to capture Lispector’s musings on the act of writing or questions regarding representation as they are presented through her narrator, Rodrigo. Pay close attention, and you’ll find your answer. Although Rodrigo is absent from the film, he is symbolically present via Amaral’s juxtaposition of Macabea’s humble life, and the reality that is presented to her within an industrialized society. I personally believe that this is not a representation of the original text, but an appropriation of certain underlying themes within it. As you will see, Amaral manages to give us her own perspective and cultural critique of representation via the artistic medium of which she is a part. In this sense, the film stands alone, independent of the novella, with a few strong threads tying the two together. For anyone who is interested in the question of representation within the cultural industry, commodity fetishism, capitalism, feminism, etc., you need to watch this film, and then you need to watch it again.
Hour of the Star, a sad and depressing look at life in Brazil.
Hour of the Star (1985) is a straight forward look at life in poverty stricken Brazil. Away from the glitz and glamor of the popular traveler’s paradise and away from the tourist traps. Life is hard and the outlook is very bleak for the poor working class of Brazil. But one young woman is determined to live life to the fullest. She dreams of a future that only exists in her mind. No matter what situations life dishes out, she remains oblivious to reality and remains in a fantasy world searching for a man who’ll take her away from her life of poverty.
Brilliant film. I watched this one in college and I was amazed by the film-making and the strong storyline. I couldn’t believe that people lived in such squalor (they make the ghettos look nice). People living on slave labor wages and doing everything they can to survive. I highly recommended this picture (if you can locate a copy).
