Abstract

The serial Capitu (Globo network, 2008), directed by Luiz Fernando Carvalho, is examined in order to detect deviations from the historical pattern of Brazilian television fiction. The adaptation of Dom Casmurro, the Machado de Assis' novel, the departure from classical television, the possible hypertextual relationship with film versions of Dom Casmurro and the relationship with postmodernist films are investigated by means of comparative analysis. Some related television programs are mentioned in support of the hypothesis that Brazilian television has reached a new stage in narrative trends and use of audiovisual language.
