Synopsis / Plot
Former boxing champion Belarmino is interviewed about his private life, his career or lack of, and his present routines. Belarmino, a man of no culture, dodges the most probing questions like a smart lawyer, sometimes attacking other people, and always facing the adversary head-on (camera in close-up). The interview is completed with contradictory views by Belarmino's former manager, scenes of his daily routine at home or a cheap restaurant with his wife and daughter, ogling the women in the street or watching a strip-tease show, as well as scenes of him training and boxing. From illiterate shoe-cleaner to a brief moment of glory, back to humble unqualified work as cleaner and night-club doorman.
