Limite Mário Peixoto

Creative Work — Silent Films Readings


Limite is the only film Mário Peixoto wrote and directed. In 2015 it was voted the greatest Brazilian film in a list of the 100 Greatest Brazilian Films of All Time by the Association of Cinema Critics of Brazil. A very innovative film-poem that still enchants – two women, a man and a boat, the fluidity and pacing at which memory unfolds. Limite is also the only Brazilian film included by David Bowie in his list of the ten greatest Latin American films.
