Original title : Reza a Lenda
In a not-so-distant future, where some idiots think that global warming is a Chinese conspiracy, Brazil suffers from a blistering drought. With reality abandoning them, people turn to religion like never before. Some landlords realize that they can get money out of this chaos and despair. And with the number of saints existing in Brazil, there’s no shortage of opportunities. But that’s without counting on God’s Angels, a band of orphan bikers led by Father Nosso, whose mission it is to recover an icon capable of bringing rain back to their land. The only problem is that the icon is in the hands of a very sadistic landlord who has the habit of chopping off the heads of his enemies and sending them up in the air with balloons.
Here’s another oddity we picked up from our friends at Blood Window, the Latin-American genre bonanza. Holy Biker, the first feature by Homero Olivetto, exudes despair and arid dust from each shot, following into Mad Max’s footsteps and reinventing the western for the new age. This post-apocalyptic Easy Rider from Brazil will make you believe in miracles.
