Los dos hijos de Francisco


Even Joseph Jackson and Murry Wilson might have been impressed by the manic persistence of a man in Brazil named Francisco Camargo. Mr. Jackson and Mr. Wilson provided the somewhat fearsome fatherly pushing that propelled their children to success in, respectively, the Jackson 5 and the Beach Boys. But they had nothing on Mr. Camargo, whose determination is both the most unnerving and the most touching thing about the Brazilian film “Two Sons of Francisco.” The movie tells the story of the rise of Zezé di Camargo and Luciano, a leading Brazilian country music duo. The two men, brothers and Francisco Camargo’s sons, started out a very long way from stardom, and though their father was not the first to pressure his children into becoming entertainers, few have had so far to go and such daunting tragedy to overcome. Similar stories in the United States tend to be turned into made-for-television mush. This one is manipulative in its own way, but it casts a sweet spell nonetheless.
