If you like emotion and reality, watch
26 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Beautiful, wonderful, sometimes shocking and true. Great movie, like every movie directed by Carlos "Cacá" Diegues. Four touching stories, from living in danger to a different type of love, passing by the prostitute. The stories have a song that gives their name, for example, "Drão" from the Gilberto Gil's song with the same name (also wonderful). Because of this, the movie is named "Veja Esta Canção" (See This Song).

Great cast, that acts a lot, with great actors and actresses like Fernando Torres, Fernanda Montenegro, Pedro Cardoso, Débora Bloch, Floriano Peixoto, among others. The great production of Zelito Viana helps to make of this a small masterpiece. I strongly recommend this movie if you like a different type of love (not that romantic view from Hollywood movies, I mean love in the real world), the reality put on the screen at a shocking, even cruel way, and good music.
