I would like to learn more about South America and i believe that one of the best way to learn a new culture is reading their literature, books and watching their movies.
I d like to learn about Brazil, Argentina and the other southern countries. If you dont mind, could you suggest me your Movies and Books that you like most.
Some brazilian movies I like:
Cidade de Deus (City of God)
O ano em que meus pais saíram de férias
Que horas ela volta? (The Second Mother)
And for books, I agree with Vinicius about Clarice Lispector. Some suggestions:
A Hora da Estrela (The Hour of the Star) - Clarice Lispector
O tempo e o vento (Time and the Wind) - Erico Verissimo
Dom Casmurro - Machado de Assis
I suggest : Las venas abiertas de América Latina- Eduardo Galeano. You understand all the fighting we live
I'm sorry, but I don't Know the title in english.
And to enjoy suggest Clarice Lispector ... a Brazilian author stupendous
