Vando is missing. So his friends decide to mourn his absence in the most unexpected way: dye their hair blond, reenact his favorite cartoon, go to the beach, fall in love with each other, occupy the streets of Fortaleza. In a series of tableaux vivants, theatrical games, and performative singing, the film multiplies the missing protagonist in a colorful microcosm, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing and everything at the same time. The film portrays a ruined country, while celebrating the existence of dissident bodies and building a cinematic energy of resistance. The future of Brazilian cinema can’t ignore it. (Victor Güimaraes)
