In a poor, dusty corner of Northeastern Brazil, pregnant Darlene says good-bye to her aged mother, her dusty settlement town, and sets off to be married. The wedding doesn't happen; she returns home years later with a son, in time to bury her mother. Darlene isn't especially young or gorgeous, but she is radiant with a full-bodied, earthy eroticism that proves irresistible to first one, then two, and finally three men. If Darlene needs all three to make one complete husband, well, they believe she has enough love to go around. The film weds the humor and magic of a folk tale to a very modern feel for the psychological dynamics between men and women, and for the subtle politics of male rivalry in a macho culture

Eagles, donkeys and butterflies : an anthropological study of Brazil's "animal game" by Roberto da Matta( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and Portuguese and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roberto DaMatta, one of Brazil's foremost anthropologists, and Elena Soarez approach the question of gambling in popular culture in general and its treatment in social anthropology in particular. They focus on the "animal game", a kind of popular Brazilian gambling entertainment or lottery in which locals bet on a list of twenty-five animals. The authors argues that the success of this game, which originated in 1882 with the founding of the first zoo in Rio de Janeiro, and the social release the game provides are significant aspects of Brazilian social history and identity."--Jacket

Laranjinha et Acerola vont bientôt avoir 18 ans. Ils ont grandi ensemble dans les favelas de Rio de Janeiro. Acerola est marié et a un fils de deux ans dont il doit s'occuper. Habitué à sa liberté, il se sent prisonnier et vit sa paternité comme un fardeau. Pour Laranjinha, le problème n'est pas d'être père, mais de ne jamais en avoir eu. Bien décidé à retrouver son géniteur, il commence à fouiller dans son passé. Alors que les deux amis se débattent avec les premières épreuves de l'âge adulte, ils sont entraînés malgré eux dans les guerres intestines que se livrent les trafiquants de drogue et les bandes locales...Cinq ans après "La cité de Dieu", le producteur-réalisateur Fernando Meirelles replonge dans l'univers violent des favelas et nous livre une oeuvre âpre et ultra réaliste. Plus qu'un film, "La cité des hommes" est un véritable coup de poing !
