I read here in IMDb an user writing that it was a bad movie and no one should watch it. I totally disagree. It's a movie that shows Brazil in the 70's while the dictatorship was arresting people that was against it. The movie is a real story of a famous woman. Many unknown families suffered that days.
It's an excellent movie that shows a really ugly part of Brazilian history.
Patricia Pillar and Daniel Oliveira were excellent on the movie. (and the whole cast)
Every Brazilian should watch it!!!
