"Cronicamente Inviável/Chronically Unfeasible" is Bianchi's strongest movie
"Cronicamente Inviável/Chronically Unfeasible" is Bianchi's strongest movie. Also his best work. From script to cut, from actors to photographing, Bianchi brilliantly directs a drainage of old and open wounds of Brazilian recent History. Somewhat like in "Anna: Ot shesti do vosemnadtsati" (1993) -- classical Nikita Mikhalkov's documentary that deeply relates the end of the Soviet Empire -- Bianchi's movie performs a deep panel of his country society. Unlike "Anna", instead, it is a transversal rather than a longitudinal (timeline) cut. Both of them give the public a wonderful job of information AND opinion. If you are interested in the problems of Third World, specially Brazil, you MUST see this movie.
