Heleno

José Henrique Fonseca

The road to ruin is blindingly beautiful in Heleno, a tempestuous portrait of Heleno de Freitas, the 1940s Brazilian football star whose passion for the game was matched only by his addiction to women and the contempt for his Botafogo teammates. His priorities in his nascent career, as he tells a reporter in the film, were "goals, slim waists and Cadillacs“.
