Synopsis

Based on a Brazilian poem and very attractive set in the country’s Amazonian and Northeast hinterlands, Joao and the Knife is a hauntingly strange and visually stunning picture. A poor and elderly hunter and cattleranger marries Maria, a 19-year old village girl, against logic and advice. As he cannot have children with his young bride, he travels to the Amazonian forest to make some money to give her a better life. On his return as a rich man four years later, he finds Maria carrying a three-year old little girl. Joao, a simple man who has never lied in his life, doubts about the fidelity of his wife. He buys a knife before returning to their village. A long trip through the jungle. Will Joao be able to refrain from hurting the one he loves so much?
