Synopsis:
Based on award winning novel 'O Matador' by Patricia Mel, 'The Man Of The Year' boasts intense performances from Brazilian film and TV superstars Murilo Benicio and Clausia Abreu.A startling journey through the reality of harrowing violence in urban Brazil, the film marks director Jose Henrique Fonseca's astonishing feature debut. Maiquel is an ordinary guy who wants an ordinary life - wife, kids and a nice house.His life is transformed through an incredible series of events that leads to him gunning down a much feared local hood.
Adopted as the hero of the neighbourhood, Maiquel struggles to deal with his new found notoriety and urged on by the enthusiastic locals and corrupt Rio police soon finds himself becoming a hitman for hire. Winner of the SKY prize at the San Francisco Film Festival - awarded for unique artistic vision - and shown to rave reviews at the Berlin International Film Festival, the vibrant, pulsating The Man Of The Year is a piercing, brillant depiction of a society in convulsion.
