Great Sertão

Teenager Riobaldo navigates a dangerous past with Diadorim, facing challenges and self-discovery.

Plot summary

Driven by fierce action, dynamic intensity, and unique language this epic thriller reinvents the 1965 classic film adaptation of the 1956 novel “Grande sertão: veredas” by João Guimarães Rosa. In the concrete jungles of lawless futuristic Brazil, enemies spout slam poetry in duels as their movements remind us of parkour. The adrenaline rush breaks into three timelines: the past introduces teenager Riobaldo and handsome Diadorim, the present depicts a bloody clash and reveals sexual identities, and the future exposes Riobaldo’s deal with the devil.
