Sangue do Meu Sangue

Sangue do Meu Sangue

João Canijo

João Canijo | Portugal | 2011 | 139 min. | O.V. Portuguese subtitled in Spanish

With a story set in the neighbourhoods on the city outskirts and in the suffocating family co-existence made necessary by the lack of resources, Canijo seems to subvert what is the television genre par excellence: the soap opera. Sangue do meu Sangre tells the story of Maria, a single mother with two children who are almost adults (Claudia and Joca) and who works as a cook. Her tiny apartment is also shared with her sister Ivete, a hairdresser in a shopping mall, in an extremely close, intimate relationship. Everything gets complicated when Claudia starts a relationship with an older, married man who opens a door for her to other worlds (not necessarily to invite her to step fully into them) and when Jocaends up getting involved with the local drug dealers.
