Justino (Regis Myrupu), a native Desana, works as a security guard at the cargo port of Manaus on the Amazon. A widower, his main company is his youngest daughter. A nurse at a health clinic, Vanessa (Rosa Peixoto) is accepted to study medicine in Brasilia and will need to be leaving soon. Confronted with the oppression of the city, where he never quite fits in, and the distance of his native village from which he left twenty years ago, Justino finds himself condemned to an existence without place. During the night, a mysterious creature follows his footsteps. Meanwhile, on television, the news talks about a wild animal lurking in the neighbourhood.

Cool Fever - The Fever review by TE

Spoiler Alert

This subtle, stealthily paced film reveals the core issues at the heart of the clash between indigenous peoples and the ruthless capitalism of aggressive corporations. On the one hand, the wildness of the jungle is never far from the industrialised world, and on the other hand, the soulless demands of the city are never far from aboriginal consciousness.

Brazil is at the forefront of this conflict and this film is quietly relevant.

This tension is embodied in the stoic, passive character of Justino, and in the presence of a predatory wild animal on the fringes of the community. Justino's daughter has a foot in both camps and it is her move to university that triggers the final enigmatic scenes.

Maya Da-Rin's direction is very impressive, a great deal is conveyed in satisfyingly minimalist ways.
