A man and woman with an amulet

A magical thriller that celebrates the rituals of Candomblé.  A young man, charmed at birth to be impervious to all physical injury, becomes a kingpin in the underworld of Rio’s slums.  The story is told troubadour-style by a blind street singer from Caxias, a violent Rio de Janeiro suburb.  - New Yorker Films
