Simply one of the greatest movies of all time
14 April 2015 | by gustavo_ds_moraesSee all my reviews

Watch "Limite" was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. In the first time I watched, I was quite confused about the film claim, which left me in doubt about whether I liked the movie or not. But, in the second time I saw, I could see why "Limite" is one of the most acclaimed films of Brazilian cinema by the critics. With a very unusual story and a very experimental direction, "Limite" transports us into a universe with images of rare beauty, thanks to the direction of Mario Peixoto, which capture, with your camera, very bold and meticulous frames. Due to its experimental aspect, it can be said that "Limite" is one of the most avant-garde films of his time, and even to the present time it sounds like a very advanced film. It's a pity that a film with such quality as "Limite" is so despised by the public, it deserves much more recognition and publicity than it has.
