Very good. Was very funny and cute. Too bad it was never released into the USA. Excellent work of fiction. I think a movie on just the monarchy would be nice too that included Pedro II with his wife and his daughter Isabel and their grandchildren. I am sure that it would succeed in every way possible since their positive feedback on the monarchy during today's time. Good luck and fantastic film. I hope that a film like that will come about in a grand way. Excellent performance by all of the character's . A 10 out of 10. I highly Recommend anyone who wants too watch a very funny movie too watch this. I am sure that it will make anyone laugh and leave a lasting impression of the film. The way it was created will be on one mind for a long time too come as you watch with laughter at a great detective who is called into action. His mission is too retrieve a valuable violin and too return it un harm. Will he succeeded? Watch and find out.
I do wish that the film will one day be released too the people of north America and elsewhere on DVD's and I hope too see this film in a blockbuster or any kind of film market.
