Has its moments
6 March 2003 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This movie is important because it's helping the rebirth o Brazilian cinema. It's not a masterpiece, but it's driving interesting crowds to the theaters. The story follows pretty much the style of "Auto da Compadecida", but it hasn't the same brilliance. Antonio Fagundes does a boring portrayal of God, coming to "spend vacations" in poor northeastern Brazil. The screenplay is sometimes confusing and the storyline is all broken up. Paloma Duarte deserves credit for doing well her part as "Madá", but Wagner Moura is irritating as "Taoca". If you have nothing better to do on a rainy weekend, see it. It's amusing and lighthearted, but it's not going to be the "movie of your life".
