Goofs

During the scene of Wilson Pinheiro's execution, the characters are watching a well-known moment from the TV series Vale Tudo. This wouldn't be possible since this series would only be released in 1988 while Pinheiro was killed in 1980. See more »

A good film cheapened by nudity
24 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

While the acting and cinematography were very good, I feel the quality of this movie was much diminished by a completely gratuitous sex scene. I would warn environmental educators or student activists against showing this movie, for there is full frontal nudity that adds absolutely nothing to the plot or character development. The director should be faulted, I believe, for deciding to include this scene, but otherwise the cast and story were engaging and well done. In short, be advised that its "not rated" rating doesn't begin to address the almost pornographic nudity--but still see this movie to learn more about an important environmental activist.
