Swimming on money
9 April 2017 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Mazzaropi is Brazilian legend as actor,director and lately producer,this movie is your early period when was under contract of Vera Cruz,l'd watched this picture in 31th December 1985,now revisiting on DVD with a bad sound,the audio sometimes almost disappear...need a restoration soon,but the movie was a big successful in that time as always Mazzaropi's movie. The story is about a poor truck driver who suddenly became millionaire after he met your unknown rich grandfather who was looking for him before he died...so he and his family moved to a mansion where he'll living in an easy life,but the troubles come together....it's a fantastic movie!!! after this he make one more movie at Vera Cruz therefore went bankrupt in 1954 unfortunately.
