Octogenarian film director Manoel de Oliveira travels autobiographical avenues in this portrait of a film director Manoel (Marcello Mastroianni) who is shooting on location in Portugal. During a break, one of the film's actors, Afonso, born in France but of Portuguese descent, travels to his father's birthplace, accompanied by the director and two other actors. The journey takes them to Alto Minho in the north of Portugal, where they look back on rural Portugal and the memories of a lifetime. This was Mastroianni's last film. The film is loosely based on the experiences of French actor Yves Afonso while shooting a film in Portugal in 1987. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Another Man's Garden (O Jardim do Outro Homem) - Amazon.com Exclusive

For a young girl who wants to study medicine in Mozambique, the obstacles extend far beyond the distractions of her boyfriend and her family. A moment of weakness or an error in judgment can cost her a place at the university, an irretrievable loss in a country with so few opportunities for women.

Sol de Carvalho dedicates this film to the courage of young women who continue to strive against the odds, proving that educating a girl is not a waste of time in a land where it is perceived that "sending a girl to school is like watering another man's garden."

"Full of telling details, Carvalho's film illuminates the barriers faced by women seeking an education in Mozambique."
-Museum of Modern Art

"Africa through African Eyes...not to be missed." -Twin Cities Daily Planet

Another Man's Garden is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

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

Regina (Fernanda Montenegro) is a retired divorc e living in Rio de Janeiro. She's estranged from her only son and his family because he's invited his father to live with him. She's devoted to her dog, Betina, and occupies her spare time as a member of the police force's special senior citizen program. Regina, operating under the code name "Snow White" spends a lot of her time looking for wrongdoers to report to the police. She spends her evenings looking out her apartment window with binoculars into the windows of her neighbors across the street. One night, she watches as an older gentleman appears to give his bedridden wife a lethal injection. She reports it to the police, but they back off when they learn that the gentleman, Carmago (Raul Cortez), is a respected member of the judiciary. Alcides (Luiz Carlos Persy), Regina's police contact, gets so much political flack that he kicks Regina out of the program. But Regina takes it upon herself to continue the investigation on her own. Carmago notices that he's been seeing her around a lot, and, thinking it's a coincidence, asks Regina out on a date. She accepts for the sake of her "investigation," but before long the two find that they are really hitting it off. The Other Side of the Street was co-written and directed by Marcos Bernstein, who co-wrote the script for Central Station, the film that earned Montenegro an Academy Award nomination. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

City of Men

City of Men Lowest new price: $2.99
Lowest used price: $1.47
List price: $14.99
Brand: Buena Vista Home Video

Paulo Morelli's film is a pacy, bloody thriller that pays warm tribute to a diverse cross-section of American directors including Quentin Tarantino and Michael Bay. Bullets zing across the screen, heavy artillery is deployed at all times, and Morelli makes great use of the twisty favela streets during some frantic chase sequence. Silva and Cunha, who both had roles in CITY OF GOD, carry the picture with impressive ease, and while CITY OF MEN isn't an official sequel to Meirelles's lauded picture, it does serve as a neat continuation of that film's unshakable portrayal of the violence that has beset so many young lives in the slums of Rio de Janeiro.
