Renata de Lélis,
In Melo, a poor Uruguayan country village near the Brazilian border, several men earn their living from contraband, mostly transported on bicycles. One of them, Beto, is getting too old for heavy freights but hopes to earn a motorbike. The idea is to build and charge money for the use of a proper lavatory at the occasion of the first-ever papal visit to Uruguay, as His Holiness is expected to pass trough Melo where he may be cheered by hordes of Catholic Brazilians.Written by
This is a movie about hope,friendship and the building rock of a society - the family.In the beginning I thought that religion would play a prominent role in the movie, but that was me rushing things up.
The people of Melo, a town in Uruguay, put their "thinking hats" once the visit of Pope John Paul II is anounced.These people envision a sea of visitors running through their town and prepare adequately,making sacrifices, only to be left with a broken dream and empty pockets..
In the beginning people make fun of their hazardous life, and in the end the same people defy the odds of life by turning on the other chick.
To higher spirits,salute !
