A really great Brazillian movie!
28 March 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is an really good example of movie! It's not like that cheesy comedies like "American Pie", "Scary Movie"; it's also not that kind of silly super-hero movies like "Matrix", "xXx" and another craps. This is almost like a real documentary of the real life. It's that kind of movie that you need to watch to wake up for certain things.Non-Brazilian people, follow my advice: Watch this movie - it's a classic! Since the beginning, until the end, the situations starts to happen all the time; a lot of comic situations. A lot of tragic, or horrible, situations. And it's really great! One last advice: If you wish to learn and understand a bit more from the brazillian society, you should watch this. May you became disappointed about the brazillian society after that...
