Tráfico / Traffic (1998) João Botelho, Joaquim Oliveira, Rita Blanco, Adriano Luz, Branca de Camargo, Comedy

Traffic (1998)
It all begins when an average family (slightly chilly because they’re forced to take their vacation out of season) is struck by good fortune.

Director: João Botelho
Writer: João Botelho
Actors: Joaquim Oliveira, Rita Blanco, Adriano Luz, Branca de Camargo

Jesus the couple’s young son, finds a hidden and forbidden treasure in the sands of a deserted beach: the wealth of the hearth.

The same day, and not so far away, two priests decide to close the doors to their church due to lack of a congregation, and auction off the images of their beloved saints.

Between the wealth of the heavens and the spirit of matter they embark on an adventure. A banker with auditory hallucinations when he talks about money.

The replies of a minister with visual hallucinations when influences are concerned.

An elegant, suave and mysterious woman, with a beatiful wig and splendid colors, excites everything wherever she goes.
A general dealing with arms trafficking and his little wife dealing with arts, Olympuses and ridiculous hair.

A crazy cast of numerous characters… and even more adventures.

Tráfico is a tangled tale about how the true and old rich people have fun, how the new and false rich people encounter difficulties and how everything ends up well…

“Time Out” wrote:
Even by his own often eccentric standards, this absurdist comedy finds Botelho (Hard Times, Three Palms) in high spirits, merrily resurrecting the spirit of Buñuel with a series of very loosely linked surreal episodes. Anti-clericalism is rife, but there’s also a good deal of fun at the expense of the nouveaux riches, and the old rich too. It’s shot in saturated Day-Glo reds and blues, and that’s just the wigs. Genuinely bizzare.

Biography

Following graduation from the Escola de Cinema at Portugal’s Conservatorio Nacional in 1976, João Botelho is best known for his internationally acclaimed adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel Hard Times, Tempos Dificeis (1987). Botelho became interested in film while studying engineering. He abandoned engineering studies to attend film school, and shortly after graduation found occasional work as a graphic artist and film critic, as well as founding a short-lived film magazine. Botelho made his directorial debut with the documentary Um Projecto de Educação/A Project for Popular Education, which he co-helmed with Jorge Alves da Silva. He directed his first solo effort, Conversa Acabada/The Conversation Is Over, in 1981. For Tempos Dificeis, Botelho received prizes from the 1987 Venice Film Festival. In 1994, Botelho was commissioned to make a film about Portugal’s most famous city, Lisbon, to celebrate its designation as a European capital of culture. The film was part of a trilogy, each one depicting part of a typical day in Lisbon. Botelho’s film Tres Palmieras covered the hours of six a.m. to two p.m. and was comprised of a series of interesting short vignettes. Botelho did not make another film until Trafico (1998). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
