Sinfonia Amazonica can be regarded as Brazil's answer to Walt Disney's animated feature Fantasia. The main difference: whereas Disney had a staff of hundreds at his disposal, Sinfonia Amazonica's director Anello Latin Filho did everything himself, even inking and coloring in the animation cels himself. Two Amazon folk tales are illustrated herein, with appropriately lush background music, courtesy of Wagner and Mendelsohn (strange bedfellows indeed!) The animation resembles the "abbreviated" stuff turned out by Hanna-Barbera in the 1950s and 1960s, with a bare minimum of movement. In fact, given the many times that Filho offers us nothing more than static backgrounds, Sinfonia Amazonica is barely a "movie" at all.
