Storyline

The journalist Célio Rocha has been living a serious problem in the breast of his family for years: his father used all his savings to buy an apartment from the father of his childhood friend Otávio Sabóia, indeed a corrupt constructor who never delivered the building to the owners. When the father of Otávio commits suicide, Célio is assigned for an interview with Otávio, and is invited by Otávio to participate in a scheme in Cayman Islands, where he would receive five millions dollars. However, Célio has a breakdown when his father dies, and believed God assigned him to make Otávio give away all the money he has on behalf of the homeless. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Brilliant from start to finish
31 October 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A prime example of the far reaching scope of semi-public broadcaster SBS in Australia.

They have a film in a different language nearly every night and it was hard not to be drawn into this film as the moral lessons appear to be driven home by the writer, producer and director.

As stated by previous reviewers this enormous country suffers from extremes of wealth and poverty and the themes are treated very powerfully in this film.

It transcends a plot as the viewer becomes so absorbed by the characters that the outcome is almost secondary.

The closing titles which feature the dynamic sound of Gigi D'Agostino also claim the attention of the watcher as they illustrate what a mammoth production this film was.
