The Beggining of the Brazil´s Film Industry
7 January 2003 | by (Goiania(GO), Brazil) – See all my reviews

One of the first productions of Vera Cruz, about the life of the brazilian composer Zequinha de Abreu (who wrote the famous song "Tico-Tico no Fuba"). Despite his year, the film didn´t aged so much, but still remained the innocence of that time. In the cast, the future Palm D'Or Winner Anselmo Duarte, here as the leading man, and directing, the future Bond-Villain Adolfo Celi. Worth watch as registry of the Brazilian history.
