Synopsis

“The Romeo and Juliet atmosphere is present, but what catches the attention are the scenes involving cocaine, marijuana and violence, which make the film look more like an interesting and exciting new genre: the ‘Brazilian gangster.’” – Rolling Stone

A gripping tale of love, revenge and violence, the hit crime drama Brazilian Western arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from Shout! Factory.

João de Santo Cristo is a young man who leaves his impoverished home behind in search of a better life. Arriving in Brasilia, he soon falls for the beautiful Maria Lúcia, the daughter of a senator. But as their relationship flourishes, João’s involvement in drug trafficking causes him to slide deeper and deeper through a downward spiral of crime and violence. The stakes become even greater as João finds himself on a collision with playboy drug dealer Jeremias, his rival in business – and for the heart of Maria Lúcia. Brazilian Western has been hailed by critics and audiences alike for its passionate storytelling, melding the stylistic approach of classic genre films with a distinct and original vision from one of Latin America’s up-and-coming directors, René Sampaio.
