Favela experience in Belo Horizonte : This film is better than "Talk Radio".
Lately considering the fact that Brazilian cinema has been too much associated with violent films,it is nice to learn that this film is a nice surprise.Even though it is based on the lives of some Favela youths,it is not at all violent.It is a true indication of the fact that people can change their lives for good if they adopt pacifist means.The role of police in troubling ordinary citizens is nicely depicted.It is hard to believe that the police forces meant to protect people are playing a game of cat and mice.Although,Uma onda no ar boasts of a serious message,it would be a understatement to say that it is not a light comic film.There are some very good radio moments which keep the viewers entertained.Something in the air is a nice film to be watched in order to have a grasp of Brazilian favela's disturbing realities.
