RED CARPET (Red Carpet - 2005)

This warm, dynamic comedy is the story of Quinzinho, a Brazilian country peasant from a long foregone era. Quinzinho has a promise to keep: to take his 10-year-old son to watch a Brazilian Mazzaropi movie just like his father once did when he was a boy. So off he goes with his wife, Zulmira, his son, Neco and Policarpo, the donkey, on a journey through towns and cities to find a movie theater still playing the pictures he so fondly cherishes. But Quinzinho soon finds out that times have changed. After his donkey is stolen and he finds himself separated from his wife and son, Quinzinho realizes it will take smarts and resilience to get his family back together again and fulfill his commitment
