«We all keep a wolf behind the door»
Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Brazilian director and scriptwriter Fernando Coimbra is interested in stories about the darkest aspects of human relationships, so when he saw a news item in the press about a trial for the kidnapping and murder of a little girl that her father’s lover was involved in he decided to research this and take it as the starting point for the script for his first feature film. “We all keep a wolf behind the door, which can easily emerge at any time, and we need to try and study why a human being can get to do something like that.”

Coimbra says that they wanted to ensure that the tension and suspense didn’t let up and that they kept the audience hooked throughout O lobo atrás da porta. He is also a theatre actor and his work in the theatre and on the big screen has meant that his film has a cast of prestigious Brazilian actors.

O lobo atrás da porta has recently been screened at the Toronto festival where it was really well received, and after San Sebastián it will be heading for film festivals in Zurich, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo.
