Bold and powerful new release
7 September 2004 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Saw this picture today and am very pleased the way Carlão portraits group of female workers in an industrial Sao Paulo neighborhood, their families, working habits , free time and loves.Very powerful and striking story on some intolerance you can found in almost every big industrial city in the world. Episode on fascist behaviour against foreigners from other provinces is bold and powerful. Great cinematography, full of ideas,great acting. The tenderness of the director towards his characters almost equals Ken Loach's views, but in a more poignant, radical and explosive way.

Some characters could be developed more as their personality is rich enough for a whole new inside story.
