A beautiful glimpse into Brazilian music
20 June 2011 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie is mandatory for any samba, bossa-nova or general Brazilian music fan.

I did not know Baden Powell until I saw this film, and after viewing it I turned into a huge fan.

The songs played are beautiful pieces of Brazilian culture that I think everyone should enjoy.

Maria Bethânia also performs a few songs, and really pulls you into the feeling of each one. The relaxed background in some performance really allow you to feel like you're watching something few people get a chance to see: true artists recording and just hanging out in the backstage, or cafés.

Almost 40 years old, and still a great film.

9/10
