ingenious comedy about the cold war and the powers that be
20 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a treasure waiting to be found. With a very original screenplay, it presents the life of an average man in Brazil that suddenly turns upside down when a dying mysterious trillionaire from the East puts his name is his testament. The economy of the world is at stake as he puts the money into his bank account, and the then two superpowers (USA and USSR) send agents to go after him, in an atmosphere of funny conspiracies and political sarcasm.
