Quotes

Stuart Angel: [a letter to his mother] Mom, you ask me if I believe in God. I ask you: what God? It has been my mission to show God inside of Man because only in man can He exist. There is not a poor or worthless man that seems to not have a mission. Every man by his own only influences the nature of his future.

Real Facts
14 August 2006 | by (Campina Grande, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brazil had 21 years (1964 - 1985) of military dictatorship and this still hurts many people who lived those times of horror and violence against people. From time to time those memories come up when a new film of TV series is done. "Zuzu Angel" is the newest of these products and again the hard reality of 60's, 70's and 80's comes back.

"Zuzu Angel" is much more than a simple film! It's live history and also an important document which proves how courageous and dedicated a mother can be. This is also a good opportunity for the world to know Patrícia Pilar, a very good Brazilian actress. Worldwide cinema fans should enjoy this movie and use it as a tool to get in touch with the great cinema Brazil has done in the last 11 years.
