Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da Porta)


With director Fernando Coimbra in person

Brazil. Dir. Fernando Coimbra. 2013, 100 mins. New York Premiere. With Thalita Carauta, Juliano Cazarré, Milhem Cortaz. A child is kidnapped. At the police station, Sylvia and Bernardo, the victim’s parents, and Rosa, Bernardo’s lover (and the main suspect), give contradictory evidence. Rosa and Bernardo met on a suburban train in Rio de Janeiro. They became lovers. Rosa and Sylvia develop a secret friendship, without the latter knowing of the former’s relationship with her husband. Sylvia, tired of her housewife routine, sees her friendship with Rosa as a break from her tedious routine. Director Fernando Coimbra’s first feature film won Best Film at the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival.
