The history turning on a story turning on the history
7 August 2003 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is the best documentary I'd ever seen. Show in a carnal way how the press work to a government, and how the paranoid take care of it, with barbarous consequences. An unique movie, with a dramatic self-history, that is the dramatic self history of a country and all a continent. Art in pure state.
