A Casa do Tom: Mundo, Monde, Mondo
  • English, Spanish, Portuguese

Even the most loyal admirer of Tom Jobim, the most documented Brazilian artist throughout the world, cannot imagine the surprises he will encounter in this film. It contains previously unreleased pictures and images captured for 15 years by Ana Jobim, his wife, that show details of the life and work of Tom Jobim. Shot in New York, Rio de Janeiro and the family ranch in Poço Fundo, the film shows his intimacy with his children, the birth of important songs, parties at home with other musicians, and even a unusual Jobim in pajamas, in an “expedition” in the woods. “When someone visits the intimacy of a great artists, possibly the distance between him and the myth is felt to be smaller. For me it is the opposite; the distance becomes greater and I have more conscience of the myth”, says Ana.
