Terrible movie.
14 February 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a terrible movie. i have seen many documentaries and other films that talks about the same subject, so i'm not just saying this from out of nowhere. the stories, in the movie, don't really add up, the editing is bad, character aren't convincing, the actors clearly aren't trained in cinema acting: their reactions were always seemed false. Some scenes were clearly added just for shocking purpose, but all the other factors of the film contributed to diminish them. being so, the whole point on this story (about middle-class, and the lack of a good social structure in Brazil society etc.) goes to waste.

Poor image quality, poor sound. my vote was for 2, just because i can imagine some work people must have had to put this together. overall a terrible work. Sorry Sergion Bianchi.
