Great Movie
8 February 2003 | by (Curitiba, Brasil) – See all my reviews

Great movie! One of the best movies i've ever seen! This film shows how hard and difficult is to quit drugs and find a place for treatment when you're a poor person! Great acting, great plot and very well direct. This is NOT another movie about drugs and drug addicted only, its about burocracy of the healthcare system, how bad it is unless you have money and how it affects this people.

Watch this movie if you can, its really good.
