Surrealistic Tale of Greed and Corruption in the Chaotic and Unfair Brazilian Society
19 July 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The journalist Célio Rocha (Pedro Cardoso) 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 (Miguel Falabella), 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.

"Redentor is a surrealistic tale of greed and corruption in the chaotic Brazilian society. It seems to be inspired in the real case of the scum Brazilian constructor Sérgio Naya, and anyway is based in many elements of our very unfair society where justice rarely works in situations like showed in the movie. The story is amazingly good, with the exception of the conclusion, which gives a religious connotation to the plot, being corny for my taste. The performances of Pedro Cardoso and Miguel Falabella are spectacular as usual, and the whole cast has also great acting. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Redentor" ("Redeemer")
