Gabriel Mascaro (Brasil/Uruguay/NL 2015)
In wonderful Cinemascope this is one of the great, even erotic surprises of this movie year: Iremar works at the “Vaquejadas”, a rodeo in the North East of Brazil where two men on horseback try to bring down a bull by grabbing its tail. Home is the truck used to transport the animals from show to show which he shares with his coworkers; Galega, an exotic dancer, truck driver and mother to her spirited and cheeky daughter Cacá, and Zé, his rotund compadre in the bull pen. Together they form a makeshift but close-knit family.
