The Given Word
Zé is a very poor man from the Brazilian countryside. His most prized possession is his donkey. When his donkey falls terminally ill, Zé makes a promise to Saint Bárbara: If his donkey recovers, he will carry a cross - like Jesus - all the way from his city to Saint Bárbara's church in the state capital. Upon the recover of his donkey, Zé leaves on his journey. He makes it to the church, but the priest refuses to accept the cross once he came to know the context of Zé's promise.

(ca) wrote: This is a great little independent horror film. Absolutely loved this fairly creepy voyage.
(jp) wrote: Really poor effects mixed with really poor acting. Cliched characters and lacking in originality as far as story is concerned. Avoid.
(es) wrote: A much better film than Capote.
(br) wrote: An odd and disturbing film that did not work for me. A superb beginning fades into a mess of hollow, drooling pseudo-characters. The ending is wanting, weak, and decidedly unsatisfying. Waste of a fine cast.
(us) wrote: i have the strange urge to watch this
(us) wrote: I read the play and did a scene for it in my college acting class. I can't remember a great deal about the movie other than thinking Jeff Bridges should play the Nolte role and vice versa. Sam Shepard's play was much better too from what I recall.
(fr) wrote: Best movie of all time. :D
(mx) wrote: Quite Nice.. Brooklyn as a community has been captured beautifully
(jp) wrote: At it's best, the movie was OK.
(ru) wrote: I'm surprised at myself for never having seen this 80s Charles Band produced Empire Pictures horror flick. I've always been a fan of Band's brand of horror and this film had a bit more quality to it than most, with a cast that includes Lane Smith (you'll recognize him when you see him), Viggo Mortensen and Chelsea Field and the film being directed by Renny Harlin before he hit it big with "Die Hard 2." And you even get Tommy 'Tiny' Lister as one of the prisoners and Kane Hodder as the student coordinator. The film starts as a as a standard prison about an evil warden versus the prisoners, but this prison in haunted by former prisoner who was wronged and who's looking for revenge. This film was a lot more violent and gory than I'd expected and some of the gore is actually reminiscent of Clive Barker's "Hellraiser," particularly once scene involving barbed wire wrapping itself around a guard (and this is meant as a compliment).
(nl) wrote: This may be the worst movie I have ever seen. How did this ever get made? Why was it made? Unbelievably painful to watch. Perhaps the worst script ever written. Makes "Howard the Duck" look like Citizen Kane.
(us) wrote: Very lurid thriller that is undeniably intriguing. Trashed upon its initial release, the film seems to have turned around in most critics minds and has become a much more appreciated piece of film making. Very graphic sex scenes and violence make this one not for the faint of heart-you will feel like you need a shower after viewing, but isn't that what good, effective films are supposed to do to the viewer?
(mx) wrote: For a film about the inevitable loss of friendship and the meaningless search for purpose in life, "Ghost World" still manages to be hilarious. A remarkable achievement.
(ag) wrote: Although many aspects are shrouded in mystery, the cleverness and surreal, nightmarish creativity pulls it all together.
