They’re poor, they’re cool, they’re friends – and they live in São Paulo. They also experience little of the economic upturn heralded by President Lula. Luiz works in a pharmacy, mainly to get hold of a few pills to peddle on the black market. Luara sells tropical fish and thinks about emigrating to Europe. Both of them hang around at Luca’s, whose main job is looking after his grandmother. He has no hope of getting rich from his tattoo parlour. The trio expect nothing of the future, but style is everything to them. And they have more than enough of that! With exceptional imagery, an idiosyncratic soundtrack and delightful laconic humour, director Francisco Garcia has managed to create an atmospherically dense jewel of a film with this, his feature debut.
