Estamira is a 63-year-old woman who suffers from schizophrenia. She leads a tough life and has supported herself for the past 20 years by picking through garbage at the Jardim Gramacho Disposal Area in Rio de Janeiro. The film follows her starting in 2000, the year she begins treatment in a psychiatric clinic. At first, it is hard to understand her in her stream-of-consciousness sentences, delusions and obsessions. Gradually, however, we get to know her as a woman who can have quiet and lucid moments despite her illness. Interviews with her grown-up children provide the necessary background information. Grainy black-and-white and lyrical colour images alternate with one another and highlight the almost surrealist decor of the dump, where among giant, smoking mounds of garbage, a handful of people and flocks of black vultures are looking for anything worth taking.

Ian C (kr) wrote: Well directed and top acting from Ben Mendelsohn and in particular Bryan Brown but it drags and drags and the plot is sussed out early on.

Steven V (gb) wrote: The director has a different visual style. Occasionally his tilted camera angles was distracting. the violent scenes of the railroad enforcers terrorizing the families were too many and went on too long. Connections/relations/conflicts between other characters could have been developed more and the script needed more work.

Bengel W (es) wrote: Pierre has done a fantastic job on the cinematography making for a rich and full visual treat that pays attention to detail. This is required as the finest quality actors are working hard to give an intimate story that is sensual and naughty. The depth of the emotions that hurt deeply when one brakes ones promises are shown clearly and so realistically that one finds oneself heart wrenched. Nibbles: Coffee.
