The best Brazilian film of the season
23 April 2000 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

MAUA, the Brazilian film about the 19th century national hero of the same name is a masterpiece of its genre. Master director Sergio Rezende has been producing a series of historical epics these past few years, and his latest is his best. It is also the best Brazilian film of the 1999/2000 November to April film season, according to many. I agree wholeheartedly. The period details, the superb acting, beautiful sets and historical relevance to today's Brazil, compared to the country's state 110 to 150 years ago all contribute to make this, a film not to be missed. The film maker contrasts the country's economy in two different centuries, in this, the 500th anniversary of "Brazil" as a Western-style country, to great effect. In MAUA, open markets, free trade and other liberal economic policies currently pursued by the Brazilian government get the greatest promotion that issues like these can ever get. They are dramatized, and persuasively pitched to the public through MAUA's life story. He has always been considered the pioneer of Brazil-oriented (as opposed to Portuguese Empire-oriented) business development and distribution of wealth, as well as a champion for the abolition of slavery. This film will cement his image as a semi-god in Brazil's history. The film will also be remembered for a long time, for the fine historical epic and drama that it is.
