Aniki Bóbó
(1942)

Country: Portugal

Genre: Drama, Family

IMDb

Synopsis

The title comes from a childrens' rhyme. The movie is about children, the games they play, the fights, and the friendships they are involved in. But the film has adult themes of guilt, sin, desire, and jealousy that pervade the whole story. The action centres around Carlitos who attempts to 'buy' his friendship by stealing a doll from a shop. The cast is almost entirely made up of the local children.

Dividing Bar

A beautiful early neorealist monument widely considered one of the best Portuguese films ever made, along with The Tyrannical Father, The Green Years and Blood.
