A Cry for Justice
28 February 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

"The Case of the Naves Brothers" fills an important gap in the many genres of Brazilian Cinema - the trial movie.

The story - based on true events - follows the injustices suffered by two innocent brothers in a small Brazilian town, in which both are tortured for months by corrupt and despicable police officers.

While being expertly directed and written, the film is unfortunately dated on a technical level, yet its themes are more contemporary than ever, specially when one considers the constant violations of human rights in Third World countries such as Brazil.

Overall a very important, brave and honest film. A remake would be most interesting, specially in view of the rebirth of Brazilian Cinema.

A film that not should not be forgotten.
