Film Series: Central Station

1998. Brazil/France. Dir: Walter Salles. With Fernanda Montenegro, Vini?cius de Oliveira. 113 min. 35mm print.


A stalwart orphan and a jaded former schoolteacher set out in search of the boy’s lost father – and discover untellable Brazilian splendor along the way. Shooting both urban sprawl and bucolic meadowland with abiding warmth, Salles weaves dense characterization and spiritual depth into a unique road movie.
