Tainah, an Amazon Adventure

Abundant landscapes of the Amazon rain forest enliven this ecological tale from Brazil (2000) in which the title character, a good-hearted Indian girl, matches wits with unscrupulous trappers and grotesque trophy-hunting gringos. After Tainah befriends a boy from the city, the film manages to involve us in their curiosity as each learns something about the other's world; unfortunately the story is bogged down by fairly predictable plot twists and constantly italicizes its message about saving rare species. Directed by Tania Lamarca and Sergio Bloch. 90 min. (TS) (City North 14, 9:45 am)
