A woman marries a gambler, thinking she could straighten him up, but he loses all their assets, even their own house, and tries to commit suicide. But one of the winners f...展开alls for his stepdaughter, and this could change the situation.
Enchantment and Emotion. "Angela" is regarded by Brazilian film critics one of the gems the now legendary Brazilian studio Vera Cruz produced in the 1950's. The film was an attempt to create a luscious, enchanting and visually stunning romance story about the classic love themes of loss and redemption.
While this style of Cinema, free from the social issues that usually permeate South American films, was deemed unworthy by many, today most critics rightfully agree that it represented a now-lost period in the country's history; of great innocence and hope, times when things were simpler and lives safer.
Despite having an ordinary story, the film's visuals continue to impress, specially the nearly-perfect cinematography, well above average even by today's standards. Ultimately, "Angela" is a very entertaining film, with captivating performances and beautiful scenery. A naive classic of a Brazil that may or may not have existed only in dreams.
