Socialist Worker

Linha de Passe

Issue No. 2136

This film explores the importance of football, religion and family in Brazil.

Four brothers each hold to something important to survive. For Dinho it’s an evangelical church, for Dario it’s football. Denis is a motorcycle courier while Reginaldo spends his days travelling on buses looking for the father he has never met.

Walter Salles’ works include the classic films Motorcycle Diaries and Central Station.
