Mário Peixoto Limite


Twenty-two-year-old filmmaker Mário Peixoto is said to have written this masterpiece of avant-garde cinema – the only movie he would ever make - in a burst of inspiration in a single night. The story is simple, yet compelling: three young people adrift on a shipwrecked boat in the middle of the ocean, abandoned to their fears and fantasies – and fate. Walter Salles hailed Limite as « a film of transcendent poetry and boundless imagination. »
