Divino Amor

A deeply religious woman uses her job as notary to prevent couples from getting divorced.

While waiting for a sign from God as a reward for her work, she is confronted with a crisis. This vision of the future of Brazilian society represents a place where cults and churches rule and where fertility is the highest good. As a result, events such as wild dance parties and ritual orgies have an important social function.
But why does that highly valued God ignore the woman's prayers? What does she have to do to get his favour? The most important question raised by DIVINO AMOR is just as interesting as it is problematic: is this a dystopia or a utopia?

Gabriel Mascaro, Brasil, 2019, 101 min. Portuguese spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Dira Paes, Julio Machado, Teca Pereira.
