Synopsis:
Behind The Sun is a critically acclaimed story about love, loyalty, and the choice a son must make between honouring his family and following his heart. In the brutal Brazilian badlands of 1910, two families are locked in a bloody, generations-of feud. In one family, the oldest remaining son - distressed by the prospect of death and encouraged by his younger brother - begins to question the cycle of violence. Then, a beautiful young woman crosses his path and opens his eyes to life outside his culture's rigid code of honour. Stunningly photographed and exquisitely told, this outstanding motion picture will transport you to a vastly different pace and time... a place somewhere Behind The Sun.

Not up to scratch for Salles - Behind the Sun review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
25/01/2011

After not long discovering the films of Walter Salles (and loving every one to date), Behind the Sun was a big disappointment. It's slow moving, the plot's tiresome and the acting lacking emotion. That said, it wasn't entirely unwatchable as the take on life in Brazil shows something a bit different than his other films, so for that I give it 3 stars. Just don't put it at the top of your list.
