Thereshold (2008)

Sobre o filme

Threshold narrates a story of love and mystery which takes place in an old house inhabited by the young Maria, whose fame as a saint extends well beyond the mountains of the interior of Brazil. The arrival of two new characters has a disturbing affect on Maria: a traveler, for whom “Holy Maria” develops an intense passion, and Aunt Emiliana, an elderly lady determined to prepare for the great miracle. Threshold takes place around the year 1900. Its introspective plot moves along the delicate line separating love and death, repressed eroticism, perverse religiousness, a world in ruins. The backdrop of this forbidden passion, narrated with the uneven logic of dreams, is the moral landscape of the provinces, marked by the end of a cycle of prosperity and the transition to the a new century.
