A Latin American perspective of the WWII
15 January 2003 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

That is another movie about the World War II. But I should say that it is a completely different one. There are no battle scenes. Most of the time, everything seems happiness. Interesting perspective about the interaction of the north-american soldiers and the curiousity of the northeastern Brazilians of Natal, on that time, only a small town. Maybe that is a pacifist manifest, like "don't make war, make love". The title is a theory about the origin of a typical Brazilian music style, caller "Forro". Some people say that it came from the free entrance nights of Natal nightclubs, when it was written "FOR ALL". The other nights, it was exclusive for the yankees. I just don't how could they dance without the Brazilian girls...
