Cristovam, a loner working in rural Brazil for a former Austrian colonist, lives a parallel life. As an accepting person, whose ancestors have always been from that land, it is without astonishment that he discovers an abandoned place whose objects carry within them the magical memory of his country. Casa de antiguidades is one of those reconciliatory films that blasts open the limits by paradoxically exposing Brazilian social inequalities. Fantasy rubs shoulders with the most trivial reality, the past regains its rights at the heart of the present. Joao Paulo Miranda Maria constructs rich a work featuring the many Brazils whose common denominator is a light and a landscape that’s superbly captured here.

Cristovam, a native from the brazilian hinterland, works in a milk factory in a former Austrian colony in Brazil. He feels lonely, ostracized by cultural and ethnic differences. One day, he discovers an abandoned house filled with objects that remind him of his origins. He slowly settles in this house. Curiously, more objects start to appear without explanation, as if the place was « alive ».
