Amazing movie that will surpass your expectations
22 December 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of the Brazilian movie industry, and I rarely watch a national movie. Even more rarely I like it. But, with this movie, everything was different. Instead of saying why the movie is good and why you should watch it, I'll just describe what I felt while I watched it.

The movie started, we meet the characters, and I thought that Etty Fraser(Carmita) was terrible in acting. But, I continued watching the movie because several friends said good stuff about it.

The movie continues, and I still can't see anything special about it. It isn't bad, but it also isn't good, except for a few jokes. That's when reality seems to collapse in the movie. I find out that Etty Fraser was the best actress to play Carmita, and all sorts of bizarre stuff happen.

By the end of the movie, which wasn't the least exciting at first, I was in awe. One of the best movies I've ever seen. I felt myself forced to buy the DVD and support the creators of this movie. I felt myself forced to register here, rate it, and comment(since apparently all comments are either neutral or negative. Don't trust those). This movie didn't get the success it deserved unfortunately.
