O testamento do Senhor Napumoceno = Napumoceno's will( Visual )

"O Testamento do Senhor Napumoceno is an epic, or at least an epic farce, from one of the world's least known but most culturally complex societies - Cape Verde. This classic tale of the hollowness at the core of provincial bourgeois life introduces English speaking audiences to Germano Almeida, one of the outstanding writers in Portuguese today. With its novelistic breadth, the film offers a bildungsroman of a man and a society so caught up in the pursuit of conventional success and prestige it overlooks its true self almost until it is too late"--The California Newsreel Web site

"Belly up is an imaginative mixture of genres which never stops surprising -- and amusing -- by deftly turning cliches upside down. The film focuses on the ethics that exist in the universe of professional killers, in which professionalism is measured by the number of missions accomplished no matter who the target is. Based on a short story by Marcal Aquino, we show a conflict between two professional killers operating along the border between Brazil and Paraguay."--Container
