My Sweet Orange Tree (2012) 10

Brazil | 2012 | 99 min.

Zezé, almost eight years old, lives with his poor family in the country. He's sensible, he's precocious. He is a story teller. He's a problem! His favorite activity is to make mischief at home and in his neighborhood. And he is never short of new ideas! His favorite refuge is a sweet orange tree to which he can unload all the bad things that happen to him, all the good news and all his secret tricks. A touching story of love and friendship that relates to the most unexpected meeting.
