The retelling of France's iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen and ultimately the fall of Versailles.
Nelson Mandela, in his first term as the South African President, initiates a unique venture to unite the apartheid-torn land: enlist the national rugby team on a mission to win the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
The movie shows many aspects of the Brazilian popular culture. Also shows what the humblest layers of the population consider valuable. It is not a "cult" movie that a small intellectual elite will appreciate. This film exalts the values of an enormous social layer, materially poor that unfortunately the elites dislike and despise. The singers are really talented and they deserve to be registered in a beautiful movie as this is. Highly recommended for those that appreciate the contemporary popular culture and want to understand better the Brazilian people that live far from Copacabana. The diversity of the Brazilian society is much more varied and rich that what is shown traditionally to the world, and this movie shows one of the multiple faces of the Brazilian people.
