Cão Sem Dono AKA Stray Dogs [+Extras] (2007) - Beto Brant
Stray Dog, a observation of a love relationship, makes use of intimate colors to portray a generation. The film narrates the encounter between Ciro, freshly graduated in Literature, who goes through an existential crisis marked by skepticism and lack of plans, and Marcela, an ambitious young model beginning her career who completely devotes herself to her job, thus postponing the accomplishment of any dream.
About the Film
Stray Dog seeks the dialogue with a significant portion of the young Brazilian audience, based on an identification with the main characters.
The film represents an interpretation from the work of Daniel Galera, a writer born in São Paulo and living in Porto Alegre, appointed by the critics as one of the finest Brazilian authors from the new generation.
As one of the founders of Livros do Mal publishing company, Daniel Galera debuted with the short story book Dentes Guardados (2001). His first novel is titled Até o Dia em que o Cão Morreu. It is such atmosphere and characters that Stray Dog intends to capture.

Born in 1964, Beto Brant is among the filmmakers who have made their first feature-length films after the mid 90s, a time period known as the “resumption of Brazilian cinema”.
