'The Other End' Triumphs in Rio

Article excerpt

The Redentor awards were handed out at Espaco Cultural BNDS, where The Other End also received the best actress prize for Karine Teles, who stars in the unusual love story between a teenage boy and the female patient of his psychoanalyst mother.

The Other End explores the idea that love can be found in unexpected places with irony and lightness. Sholl dealt with a similar theme in Tá (2007), the winner of the Teddy award for best short film at Berlinale that centres on two young men who meet in a public bathroom.

A Woman And The Father, Cristiane Oliveira's first feature, picked up three awards. Oliveira took the best director award, while the young newcomer Verónica Perrotta was named best supporting actress and cinematographer Heloisa Passos won the best photography prize – shared with Fernando Lockett for The Desert Of Super Dara.

There was a tie in the category of best actor between Nelson Xavier for Comeback and Julio Andrade, chosen for two films – Whirlpool and Under Pressure.

Whirlpool, Jose Luiz Villamarim's debut in film, also took home the festival's second-ranked award, the special jury prize, for its story of two friends who meet decades later to confront childhood demons.
