A PROFESSORA DE FRANCÊS BRA • FRA • PRT

La profesora de francés / The French Teacher

Graça da clases privadas de francés en una gran ciudad brasileña. Ella es una mujer negra, independiente y vive en un departamento céntrico con su novia Clara. Un día Graça recibe la noticia de que su padre sufrió un derrame cerebral. Para mantenerlo, ella regresará al barrio de clase baja donde creció, en las afueras de la ciudad. De regreso a la casa, Graça es recibida por la familia vecina, que dirige una iglesia evangélica en la región, y ofrece su ayuda. Finalmente, se ve confrontada por el aspecto oscuro del fanatismo religioso, que poco a poco enreda a la profesora en un camino misterioso hacia la pérdida de la razón.

Back to the house Graça is received by the neighboring family, who runs an evangelical church in the region, and offer their help. Eventually she sees herself confronted by the obscure aspect of religious fanaticism, that gradually entangles the teacher in a mysterious path towards the loss of reason.
