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. Through our lives we create actions that result in the multiplication of reactions. This power that we all have, this power of changing the course of History, that is the power of God.

better than expected
14 August 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Zuzu Angel is surprisingly a good movie. I didn't expect much from it cause it was made almost totally by a TV team (someone already noticed that it sometimes seems like an afternoon soap opera). Yes, the soundtrack is really obvious, and just everything is explained, which kind of irritates anyone used to watching good creative movies. I believe this simplified way the plot deals with the flashbacks and the political situation in Brazil, for example, is a way of trying to get in touch with a wider public. Many people may dislike it (my case) but we can understand it (my case again). However, both the great performance of all the actors - specially Patricia Pillar, who looks better and better every day - and the intensity of the story make sure it's worth to go to the movies and watch Zuzu Angel.
