Private Desert

Private Desert ★★★★½

Brazil’s official entry to 2022’s Oscars is just amazing. The story is so good, moving, sad, thought provoking and flows beautifully. With its main subject it sparks so many questions about dating in the virtual world; is it real love? Can we really know the person we meet online? How far would we go for them? etc. The film is visually stunning too, with nice shots and beautiful color palette. Lead performances are superb.
