20 April 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Good action, good actors, good plot and a good political point of

vue makes this historical film made in a province in the extreme

south of Brazil (near the border with Argentina and Uruguay)

something to admire. Director Tabajara Ruas, also the author of

the original novel, shows the saga of an insurgent general of the

brazilian empire in the middle of the 19th century and how he

fights unsuccessfully the central government of Rio de Janeiro for

his republican and anti-slavery ideals almost half a century before

they became a political reality. It is very different from the rest of

brazilian film production.If you have a chance, don't miss it.
