Film – Febre do Rato

Febre do Rato is a film about Zico, a nonconformist poet with an anarchist attitude, who publishes a small tabloid (called Febre do Rato) at his own expense. Living in his own private world, he meets Eneida, a young woman of 18 years old who pushes him to transform himself poetically.

The film won lots of awards in Brazil and officially hits theaters this June, 2012.

By the way, febre do rato is a popular expression from Recife that is used to say someone is out of control or that something is either really good or really bad. It comes from the 1970’s when an infectious disease (Leptospirosis) spread throughout the capital.
