Chicken that follows duck dies drowned...
16 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

It seems it's war in the big favela (shantytown). The police start to go up the hill while a pirate radio station tells the population how to react. It's the radio that the police are looking for.

This is the start of a brazilian tale...

The Radio Favela appeared in years 80, in a favela of Belo Horizonte. With a courageous programming and a spontaneous language, it conquered a great number of listeners and reach beyond the imagination. UMA ONDA NO AR (A WAVE IN THE AIR) is fiction with a lot of reality. In the film, true facts are mixed with imaginary and the caracters are full of freedom.

This movie, together with CIDADE DE DEUS (CITY OF GOD) brings the problem in the brazilian favelas. But they share only the theme, CIDADE DE DEUS is a lot more powerfull with much blood and violence.

UMA ONDA NO AR brings a warm feeling of hope!!! The radio symbolize the freedom of speech. And the greatness of the humanity...
