One of the best Brazilian films of all times

Author: erubies from Sao Paulo, Brazil
23 June 2001

An underrated film that deserves more attention from the critics. This film is absolutely fascinating in the way that it analyses the intricate psychology of the characters - specially the young playboy who falls in love with his stepmother. It depicts in a very subtle way some questions that were taboos at the time of the brazilian military regime, such as incest, drugs and adultery, with such ingenuity that managed to avoid the harsh censorship of that period. These subtle situations evolve into a crescendo of realism that culminates with the final violent conflict among the group of criminals who found themselves isolated from the outside world and whose relationship quickly deteriorated. To sum up, this is a film that captures the attention from the beginning to the end, and remains so modern that certainly deserves a remake.
