Latitude Zero

85 minutes 2000

A pregnant woman (Debora Duboc), abandoned by a colonel of the Sao Paulo military police, lives a near feral existence at a desolate bar adjoining a deserted gold mine. When a former cohort of the colonel's shows up (Claudio Jaborandy), she rages at him but eventually warms to his company and allows herself to be taken in by his ambitious plans. Adapted from a play by Fernando Bonassi, this 2000 Brazilian drama oozes atmosphere, and Jacob Solitrenick's cinematography locates a certain majesty in the rough subindustrial landscape. But director Toni Venturi fails to transcend the stagebound material: the leads generate a good deal of sexual tension and pathos, but the plot mechanics begin to weigh heavily as the drama approaches its climax. In Portuguese with subtitles.
