Longer episode
23 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you know the series from TV, this is like a longer episode. Maybe not their best ever, but a fairly amusing one. You will be curious, for it shows how the main characters first met. If you don't know anything about Brazil, then God only knows how this will hit your mind, but I suppose that absurd marriages that go crazy even before the ceremonies are an interesting joke for most people.
