Much more than a collection of typical interviews with teenagers, Eduardo Coutinho’s Ultimas conversas engages with each and every one of the characters in a chat where they express themselves in all the fragility and vital determination you have when you are 17. The documentary exudes an authenticity and a freshness unusual in this age of intimate overexposure, but two circumstances charged it of sense. The terrible death of the filmmaker before finishing his final cut gives a chilling dimension to the prologue and his interventions throughout the footage. And the recent coup in Brazil emphasizes the reading of the film as a document on the discrimination still suffered by the citizens because of race, sex or social status.
