The "daddy's boy" Cazuza is a dysfunctional, drug and booze addicted, homosexual that disrespects basic social rules and terrible and irresponsible son and man.

His career is built by chance because he needs to work and his father and president of phonographic industry Som Livre gives a job opportunity in his company as a simple employee. His talent is found by his direct chief Zeca, who convinces Cazuza's father to release his album. In the top of his career, he leaves the Barão Vermelho and finds that he has Aids. Written by

Cazuza is the name of one of the most incredible singers in Brazil,he begun in the 80s with his band called Barao Vermelho,after the great success of the band he decided to start a solo career,but his future was drastically destroyed by his death in 1991 of AIDS.But actually nothing could stop Cazuza because he still inspire people in Brazil,so in some way he remains alive in all of us.
The movie is incredible and a real masterpiece.Daniel de Olivera plays the singer and gives a performance that makes you be astonished by his talent.No one on earth could play Cazuza as Daniel played!The way he speaks,he acts,it's almost creepy!He is Cazuza you are going to be quite impressed!
Everything in his story is poetic, his music sometimes in the movie speaks for itself, and the beauty of his musics makes us sad and happy in the same time.Na explosion of feelings is what you feel,marvelous feeling.The time doesn't stop but Cazuza made it stop.And he could do whatever he wanted!Viva Cazuza!
