Description
Maiquel has lost a bet and dyed his hair blond. This little event triggers a head-on collision with destiny in which he goes from nobody to hero to outlaw—all in 24 hours. Adapted from Patrícia Mello's novel The Matador, the film was a winner at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 2003. The script is by Rubem Fonseca, one of Brazil's most distinguished novelists and the author of High Art. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

"Imagine if the kids of City of God lived beyond the age of 15 and became everyday citizens. Now imagine if Quentin Tarantino was Brazilian.... An impressive debut.... Stylishly shot, brilliantly acted and completely over-the-top, Man of the Year ... [is] one heckuva a journey through Rio De Janeiro's seedy underbelly and one man's slow but sure corruption.... Vigorous and direct ... Fonesca may well be a director to watch."—BBC
