Year my parents went on vacation (The)
O Ano em que Meus Pais Sa?ram de F?rias

A film by Cao Hamburger

2007 Brazil - Drama


In 1970, Brazil and the world seem to have been turned upside-down, but 12 year-old Mauro?s worries have nothing to do with the military regime which controls the country. His biggest dream is to see Brazil become three-time winner of the World Cup. Suddenly, he is torn from his parents and taken to live in a ?strange? and fun-filled community ? Bom Retiro, a district in S?o Paulo which is home to a large Jewish and Italian community, among others cultures. A moving story about overcoming your limits and solidarity.
