Sign In. A Dog's Will Hide Spoilers. A drama of epic proportions with very good humor SMarti-3 8 July Though maintaining the popular style of the original writer this TV adaptation does not disappoint the fans of the original writer as this 4 hour series captures to perfection the universe so masterfully crafted by Ariano Suassuna.

The story is very original and all actors are just fantastic. Fernanda Montenegro does a great job as the "Compadecida", although she doesn't play a leading role. If you like sense of humor mixed with a little bit of drama this is the right thing to watch. The Movie talk about two poor men's history, who've lived in northeast Brazil.

The period portrayed in the movie is historical for Brazil, because tells about the "cangaceiros" - rebels who've looked for justice due to social inequality - who threatened Brazil's northeast. It's a movie that, at the same time, is a comedy and a drama. The adventures of two friends in a small town in Brazil. This is one of the best, if not the best, mini-series from Brazil. I haven't seen the subtitles, but it would be very hard to translate and keep the comedy intact, but it is worth seeing it.

Every actor is the right choice for the role. The two main characters are excellent actors. One of them is a compulsive liar and the way his lies are depicted is even funnier than the lies. Oscar-nominated Fernanda Montenegro has a cameo appearance as Compadecida, the same role she played over 30 years ago in the theater. Don't miss it! Share this page:. Clear your history.


Auto da Compadecida

It is based on a similarly named play by Ariano Suassuna , with elements of some other of Suassuna's plays, The Ghost and the Sow , and Torture of a Heart. There the fate of the main characters is mercifully arbitrated by in a court-room contest between Satan and Jesus, with the Virgin Mary Fernanda Montenegro interceding as the Virgin in keeping with her prayer-book promise. Odd and extravagant as this tacked-on scene is, it conveys the morality of the film better than the antecedent scenes since every character manages to reveal a saving grace as well as demonstrating the unforgiving harshness of the Nordeste environment which they all share and endure in different ways. With becoming modesty he refuses to claim any personal virtues and turns down the Virgin's offer of a purgatorial sentence but accepts instead the compassionate offer of a return to earth to 'sin no more'—but do not expect a pious conversion!
