About the film:. Brazil is one of those retro films that is Orwellian, crazy, weird, and amazing. Brazil is like steam punk, except with mid-twentieth-century technology. If there was an ipad in it, it would probably have wheels and run off a tank of diesel. Everyone is dressed vintage style like its 1943. Against this bizarre backdrop is the story of a struggle against a psychotic totalitarian government (sound familiar) and a mismatched, romance.
A low level bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state.
