Rio's Love Songs | 1993
Four popular Brazilian songs are brought to life by Carlos Diegues, one of the legendary directors from Brazil's Cinema Novo movement. In "Pisada de Elefante," a policeman falls in love with a dancer in a small nightclub. When he leaves his wife to live with her, he finds himself part of an operatic tragedy. In "Drao," the owner of a fashion boutique and an advertising director separate after six years of marriage. After new experiences and some affairs, they come to the realization that they still love each other. in "Voce e Linda," two children struggle to survive on the streets of Rio de Janeiro. In "Samba do Grande Amor," Joao, who runs an animal lottery, offers a popular service interpreting people's dreams so they can bet on the right animals. He hears someone singing in the building across the street from where he works and falls in love with the voice. Obsessed, he searches among the building's eclectic tenants for its owner.
