4.0 out of 5 stars blushfully exquisite May 10 2000
By Rosemary Felle - Published on Amazon.com
The awkwardness & fascination of this pathetically sensative character(Cartaxo) brought back memories of my own adolescence. I was glued to the screen. Her vulnerability & innocence was painful to watch, yet I was touched by the films honesty. The ending is quite sad and unexpected, but isnt that what makes notable film?
I never forgot this film, nor how it effected me. This is a film that I wish I had taped when I first saw it in 88'.
A must see for lovers of the romatically bazzaar.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite stories from Brazil Nov. 18 2013
By Reef bug - Published on Amazon.com
Giving one of my favorite movies five stars not because of cinematic excellence, technique, etc. But for some of the lines from this film: "what does culture mean?" Macabea asks her new boyfriend. A pause... "Thats not something nice girls ask about..." he replies. "Come on, I will buy you a coffee." "Can I have milk in it?" she asks. "If it doesn't cost more." he replies generously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic depiction of Brazilian life Jan. 2 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Having spent my "formative" years in Brazil, I have to say this movie tugs at my "coracao"(heart).I would LOVE to see more work (movies) from this talented director. I hope "Macabea" has finally attained her "felicidade" that was denied her for so long. Truely "um grande cultivar" (a great work)! Muito obrigado!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brazillian Diamond Feb. 20 2012
By Pleiadian7 - Published on Amazon.com
I saw this film many years ago as part of a film appreciation course and, at the time, I'm sort of embarrassed to say,I hated it. This was because I didn't "get it" and thought it was boring. But, oddly, all these years later I still sort of think about "The Hour Of The Star" from time to time (this time my musing is prompted by an article about the iPad factory in Hong Kong and the terrible monotony of the work there, remembering especially the final moment when the poor girl is, ironically, struck down by the Mercedes. Now, some 25 years later, I find I want to see this film again. In my mind its sort of a companion piece to "The Year Of The Quiet Sun", one of my all-time, almost-too-painful-to-watch favorites.
