Central do Brasil (Walter Salles)

A careworn former teacher who writes letters for illiterate people in the main train station in Rio de Janeiro meets a nine-year-old boy who becomes a half-orphan after the death of his mother. An initially suspicious and tense relationship develops between the two of them, which only relaxes on the journey to the north of the country, where the boy hopes to find his father. (filmdienst)
