    • Synopsis
    • In 1965, Waldo Vieira, a doctor and Spiritist medium who worked close to Chico Xavier, writes the novel Cristo Espera por Ti, dictated by the spirit of French writer Honoré de Balzac.
      Many years later, the book ends up in the hands of the psychologist Osmar Ramos Filho, publishes a book containing the results of his researches: O Avesso de um Balzac Contemporâneo – Arqueologia de um Pasticho.
      The Last Novel of Balzac is a documentary based on the researches of Osmar Ramos on the dictated book and the "archaeological” relations that it establishes with the work of Honoré de Balzac, especially with the novel La Peau de Chagrin (The Magic Skin). It will present and analyze the creation process of Honoré de Balzac from a quite unusual and original point of view.
