2nd Brazilian Movie Festival

Postby superedge » Wed, 12 Oct 2005 1:56 pm

For those interested in "not hollywood styled" movies, this is a great catch
http://www.sfs.org.sg/2005/10brazil.html

Some of them I saw already and have very very good stories and production like 'The man who copied', 'Lost Zweig', 'The Dog's Will' and 'Redeemer'.

That's quite interesting movie. Based on real life, this family with children their go by bicycle from Natal (top north) to Rio de Janeiro. It was big adventure.
Quite emotional movie! I loved that also.

that's what we call 'portunhol' :) not portuguese, not spanish.
some things, if you allow me:
because you're a woman you must say: 'obrigada'.
'bon' should be 'Bom'
'senhor' is used to old people. I am not that old :)

you may not believe this, but i learnt portuguese while spending time in angola, africa which also used to be a portuguese colony. used a brazilian dictionary cos that was easiest to get hold of, but the angolans speak a slightly different version:

"obrigado" for men, "obrigaduh" for women.

"bon" pronounced like the french, neither an 'n' sound nor an 'm' sound, more like a nasal stuck-in-your-nose sound.

"senor" was used on men, "senorita" or "senora" for women.

at least that's what i gathered in my short time there.
