A traditional Italo-Brazilian neighborhood Bexiga, along with Belém, Brás and Mooca, was an necessary industrial zone that in the earliest years of 20th Century attracted many businesses, an united community and was highly regarded back in those days. Lately, it's the zone greatest remembered for having the greatest pizza joints of São Paulo. But in the late 1960's and throught out the 1970's Bexiga has fallen down when its most influent residents moved to better places, a government crisis that closed down many companies and what was left was a terrible neighborhood, with empty territories soon occupied by terrible or homeless people. "Bexiga, Ano Zero" ("Bexiga, Year Zero") brings back (briefly) the importance it had in São Paulo's economy, its evolution and then sad downfall. And as I usually like to do, an update: it's no longer a decadent zone as it used to be but it's far from being what used to be in its inception: a zone that welcome jobs, great housing territories and a zone where neighbors and children got together to have great chats on the road and enjoy all the time they wanted. Despite mentioning about economical and political crisis of its then era (1970's), those movies were comissioned by the government itself, yes, the military regime. By those movies I mean a trilogy designed to show three neighborhoods depicted in a popular 1930's short stories collection composed by António de Alcântara Machado called "Brás, Bexiga and Barra Funda" (the latter place, if it has a short movie made I wasn't accessible to find. I wrote about "Brás"). And I've found "Bexiga, Year Zero" really sadder and depressive than Brás because unlike that place, Bexiga was downtrodden, emptied out almost like a ghost city while Brás has become a overcrowded zone that still offered territories to live, plenty of jobs to deliever to folks from all over the country - lately, even foreigners had tiny businesses in there. It's a mess to walk and live there but it has something to offer. Bexiga - though I don't know all that much - took some terrible time to regain momentum and become a great zone to live or go visit. Seeing those abandoned houses, all objects left or shattered, and folks going through those houses and buildings was just a sad reminder of a time when things were at its worst. But that's Brazil, progress and disintegration come hand and hand from time to time. Those are difficult times for everyone and that type of view is most likely to happen whatever zone whether being in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or elsewhere...but we'll overcome. Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it...that's the lesson I should receive from this documentary. It's not a movie to like. It's a movie to remember the values and life we used to have when communities are united despite its differences, how things can all fall down if we don't take a proper care or if we have the help our powers of be. Watch and learn. 7/10
