Boring!!!
6 July 2003 | by (SC, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This movie is so boring that when I tried to watch it I slept. I'm not sure but I think that this movie is based on the novel by José Lins do Rêgo, "Riacho Doce". There's a soap opera with the same name, but the movie is so boring, instead of wasting 2 hours in front of your TV to watch this movie, read the book.
