The reputation of Clarice Lispector, one of Brazil’s most fêted writers, has skyrocketed in the last ten years, and now director and co-writer Marcela Lordy has made a film as thorny, erotic, and complex as Lispector’s writing demands. Set in Rio, this compelling character study focuses on a complicated, intelligent, freedom-loving, slightly damaged woman not unlike Lispector herself: Lóri (the mesmerizing Simone Spoladore, Best Actress at BAFICI), a teacher who picks up men and women on a whim but is always searching. Then she begins a stop-start relationship with arrogant but likeable philosophy professor Ulisses (Javier Drolas)… There is a lot to like here in addition to Spoladore’s spot-on performance—scenes with her students are a delight; a visit from her chastising brother has truth; her heartbreak at the early loss of her mother (Lispector suffered the same thing) is felt. That the film is also so visually rich makes this a sumptuous and captivating work.

Born in São Paulo, in 1974, Marcela Lordy graduated from the film department at the prestigious FAAP (Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado) and then specialized in directing actors at EICTV, the International School of Film and TV in Cuba, working both as a teacher and an assistant director. She directed the short films Sonhos de Lulu (2009), Aluga-se (2012) and Ser O Que Se É (2018), the telefilm A Musa Impassível (2010) and the documentary Ouvir o Rio: uma escultura sonora de Cildo Meireles (2012), before making her first feature, The Book of Delights.

They screen movies, yes, but Cinecitta is so much more than just that. In fact, Cinecitta is the cultural hub in Tilburg and Noord-Brabant. Cinecitta supports the local and national film community with a film production fund, special events for local filmmakers and film distribution. In September, Cinecitta even started a new talk show about film, music, art, and science.
Cinecitta's reach extends to the international community of expats and students as well. Therefore Cinecitta started a collab with International Center Tilburg. A new initiative focusing on International Cinema will present one screening per month that is either in English or with English subtitles. If you wish, you can become a member of the Cinema Club and attend a monthly screening (in English or with English subtitles) with an introduction by a film connoisseur. Members get a special price if they purchase a three-film or a six-film pass and a free drink in the Ristobar with each visit.
