The Middle Of The World (2004)
Directors:
Vicente Amorim
The Middle of the World is a road movie on bicycles. It is freely adapted from the true story of an unemployed truck driver who, with his wife and five children, pedals from Paraiba, in the poverty-stricken Northeast of Brazil, all the way to Rio de Janeiro looking for a job. Romao (the father) feels destined to earn 1000 reais (about 300 US$) a month - a vast sum for Brazilian standards. On four bikes, the family goes through five states, knows solidarity and indifference, aggressiveness and cordiality. A 2000-mile odyssey through the hinterlands of Brazil all the way to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's best-known postcard. The Middle of the World shows the quest for the dream of a decent life - a story of dreams and hope.
