Sao Paulo by way of Jim Jarmusch, Cores (or Colours) is a lively and convincing evocation of Brazil’s down and out hipster community, and a depiction of modern urban Brazil that is a far cry from the economic development touted in the lead up to the Olympics and the World Cup. Tattoo artist, Luca, petty drug dealer, Luiz and Laura, his ornamental fish shop employee girlfriend are stuck in a rut and dreaming of escape. Francisco Garcia’s cool and stylish debut is an important new voice in Latin American cinema, best summed up by one character’s assertion: “Look around us: No-one is on track.”
