An excellent movie
15 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a touching love story. I am not a fan of Drama movies but this one is worth watching. I enjoyed to see the scenes from past and present as well as the actors portrayed very well the different facades of Brazilian society and culture. The events are played in a way that they connect very well. The main actor was excellent. The movie touches our heart with the events played and I am usually called "strong" because I wouldn't cry in movies but I definitely recommend you bringing a box of Klenexx if you want to watch this movie. It was a well deserved award as the best movie in the Canadian Festival in 2006. I would definitely recommend this movie and I would also consider in watching it again if I ever had the chance.
