Beira-Mar (original title)
1h 23min | Drama | 5 November 2015 (Brazil)
Two boys on the edge of adulthood find themselves exploring their relationship.
This is a pleasantly developed story, well acted and directed. The two themes interweave – coming to see a bullying father for what he is, and using the character of a gay friend to help Martin, who is the victim of his own father’s anger, arrive at freedom and self-assurance. This is one gay character who is not angst ridden, but comfortable in his own life and consequently able to be a guide and support. The final sequence shows self-doubt being finally overcome. This is not an action movie, but a story of psychological development. It is of the utmost importance when watching this film to read the subtitles carefully. The film is slow in parts because these are teenagers given time to say things they find it hard to express. There is a lot of time given to plucking up courage. A good film, and I enjoyed it.
