Adventurer travels by train through the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, meeting old and new lovers and remembers love-affairs of his youth. Based on Guimaraes Rosa's novel. Focusing on the culture and beliefs of the peo...展开ple in the state of Minas Geraes in Brazil, this highly innovative drama by director Carlos Alberto Prates-Correia continuously blurs the line between fantasy and reality. At center stage is a man and his life, viewed from the perspective of his dreams, visions of the past, interpretations of the present, and a "real" world somewhere in-between. Cultural and social vignettes from life in Minas Geraes are interspersed throughout the film; the avant-garde approach of Prates-Correia contorts some of these vignettes into enigmas.
