PAL, script in Portuguese, English subtitles. Following hot on the heels of the success of 'Black God White Devil' comes the second film in Brazilian director Glauber Rocha's famous trilogy, 'Entranced Earth' ('Terra Em Transe'), a bold, confrontational, vibrant picture that stands as one of the greatest pieces of work from the director widely considered to be the leader of Brazil's Cinema Novo movement. In the hypothetical Latin-American country of Eldorado, the idealistic and anarchist poet and journalist Paulo Martins (Jardel Filho) fights against the populist governor, Felipe Vieira (Jos Lewgoy), and the conservative president Porfirio Diaz (Paulo Autran), supported by revolutionary forces. Paulo is depressed, since the two corrupt politicians were his former friends and have been elected with his moral support. He is torn between the madness of the elite and the blind submission of the masses. The film is told in flashback in an inspiring mixture of Villa Lobos, cinema verite and Afro Brazilian candomble.
