A Brazil­ian bonus

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES -

un­der his name if you need any fur­ther con­vinc­ing. Then go watch and learn from the mas­ter how these strange and mag­nif­i­cent build­ings came to be.

A self-pro­claimed pes­simist, Neimeyer be­lieves that op­ti­mism ill-pre­pares us for re­al­ity while pes­simism makes it pos­si­ble to ride out any prob­lems, even the dif­fi­cul­ties he has faced. Now still liv­ing at the ripe old age of 103, Niemeyer dis­likes right an­gles, straight lines and cap­i­tal­ism. His de­signs flow like the “curves of a wo­man.” Poor peo­ple have noth­ing, but beau­ti­ful build­ings gives them some­thing to look at.

For a fas­ci­nat­ing look at a fas­ci­nat­ing man, don’t miss this film.
