Why watch this film?

In the 1920s, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa wrote two texts that significantly impacted literature: 'Inside the Forest' and 'Rashomon'. The Japanese author brought stories of versions, in which the same fact is told from different perspectives - which inspired the classic Rashomon in cinemas. 'The Truths' embarks precisely on this format. Directed by José Eduardo Belmonte ('German 2'), the feature tells the story of a crime committed in a small municipality in Bahia. It is the first case of Josué (Lázaro Ramos), a newly arrived delegate in the city. Afterwards, this story is told from different points of view of the three characters present at the time of the crime: Cícero (Thomas Aquino), the hitman; Francisca (Bianca Bin), the victim's bride; and Vladimir (ZéCarlos Machado) himself. From there, José Eduardo Belmonte builds an interesting puzzle in which, ultimately, he speaks of the crime. But in deeper layers, there is a very powerful story here about violence against women. With good performance by Bin ('Dirty Canasta'), there is a reflection on how society deals with this type of violence and, of course, how the victim is discredited with "various truths".
