The Story of Me
(O Contador de Historias)
Luiz Villaca | Brazil | 2009 | R13

In association with the Reel Brazil Film Festival.

The Story of Me follows the early life of the celebrated Brazilian storyteller Roberto Carlos Ramos. It is significant that he is identified as a storyteller rather than a writer not only because he mostly writes children's books but also because of the strong oral tradition which he keeps in his live performances, of which we are treated to an example during the credits. But for the most part, this is not a biopic, it is just a story about a troubled child and the young French pedagogue who was determined to persevere with him. This is especially handy for those outside the Portuguese-speaking world of Ramos' fame, and also because the film remains quite squarely in the vein of other recent Brazilian cinema by focusing on the lives of the street child underclass who come out of the favelas.
