Storyline

The title translates to "Watercolor of Brazil", and that's how it starts: with a paintbrush rendering the flora and fauna of Brazil (which oddly overlap) in water colors. A flower becomes Donald Duck, who is soon joined by the very cool parrot José Carioca, who introduces Donald to the city, the language, a local cafe, and - inadvertently - a drunken bee. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Introducing Zé Carioca
9 March 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While the music "Aquarela do Brasil" by Ary Barroso is sung by Aloysio Oliveira, a paintbrush makes a tribute to the beauties of Brazil. Donald Duck arrives and meets José "Zé" Carioca, a native from Rio de Janeiro. Zé Carioca gives a Brazilian hug in Donald and invites him in Portuguese to visit places in Rio de Janeiro. However, Donald cannot understand the language and Zé Carioca repeats the invitation in English. They go to the famous sidewalk in Copacabana; then they go (probably) to Cinelândia to drink cachaça, and Donald ends the night dancing with Carmen Miranda in the Cassino da Urca.

In 1942, during the period of the Good Neighbor Policy of the United States of America with Latin America to gather allied to fight in World War II, Carmen Miranda was invited to move to America where she built a successful career; n the same period, Walt Disney released Zé Carioca. Despite of the political intention, this nostalgic and imaginative animation is a great homage to Brazil. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Aquarela do Brazil" ("Watercolor of the Brazil")
