Golden Globe Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, Behind The Sun is a critically acclaimed story about love, loyalty and the choice a son must make between honoring his family and following his heart. In th ebrutal Brazilian badlands of 1910, two families are locked in a bloody, generations-old feud. In one family, the oldest remaining son- distressed by the prospect of death and encouraged by his younger brother- begins to question the cycle of violence. Then, a beautiful young woman crosses his path and opens his eyes to life outside his culture's rigid code of honor. Stunningly photographed and exquisitely told, this outstanding motion picture masterpiece will transport you to a vastly different place and time... a place somewhere beind the sun!

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Behind the Sun is a rapturous Western, a big film about a big, unwanted destiny visited upon a vulnerable, young hero. Adapted from the novel Broken April by Albanian writer Ismail Kadare (the story has been transferred from Europe to Brazil's rugged, northeastern badlands in 1910), Behind the Sun concerns two families and their long-running land war, which has robbed many a young man of his hope, love and, ultimately, life. Sent by his aggrieved father to avenge the slaying of an older brother, Tonho (Rodrigo Santoro), in torment, carries out his bloody, ancestral obligation and then proposes a truce between the families. Director Walter Salles (Central Station) aims to make a magnificently crafted, lush, and exotic epic told in broad strokes for art house aficionados, and he succeeds almost to a self-conscious fault. Still, there is nothing like a stirring, archetypal tragedy about the endless repercussions of violence and the sacrifice of innocence to a dubious cause. --Tom Keogh

In the beautifully majestic landscape of rural Brazil, Darlene (Regina Case - Moon Over Parador) longs for love, family and passion. Determined, she abruptly uproots herself from her small town to find the one man who can fulfill her desires. Three years later and still single, Darlene returns to her hometown and accepts a modest marriage proposal from her humble neighbor Osias (Lima Duarte). Before long, Darlene finds herself in a grueling work routine while Osias oversees from the comfort of a hammock. Relief comes in the form of a permanent visit from Osias' cousin Zezinho, who can't hide his amorous feelings for Darlene. Their love for each other results in the birth of a child. Just when Osias and Zezinho are getting used to balancing their unique three-way marriage, along comes Ciro(Luiz Carlos Vasconcelos), a young and handsome drifter who ignites Darlene's untapped passion. Butwill he join the marriage?

This unexpected pleasure from Brazil has the feel of a magical fable crossing paths with a contemporary comedy about sexual politics. Regina Casé stars as Darlene, a young, unmarried mother who returns to her dusty hometown with a baby in tow. Over the next few years, she is courted and impregnated by one man, then another, and another, and another. Promiscuous? Well, it's more the case that Darlene (and actress Casé) is a strong-willed force of nature, undeniably aware of her earthy eroticism. Over time, she convinces all her suitors to forge an unusual family with her and the children, and it works. Shot in a bath of natural light by Breno Silveira, with a wonderful score by Gilberto Gil and sophisticated direction (never veering into prurience or mere prettiness) by Andrucha Waddington, Me You Them is a subtle, lovely work about the heart's capacity for invention and acceptance. --Tom Keogh
