Beautiful!
10 September 2006 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. What a beauty! Everything works in this Brazilian movie. Script, Direction, Cinematography, Acting, the incredible score, just to name a few. The lives of the young women in the outskirts of São Paulo are depicted with captivating and breathtaking images along with outstanding performances. This is the kind of movie you leave the theatre with a sense of how powerful film-making can be. I went to see this movie without any knowledge of what the plot was going to be. From the very first frame I was brought into the lives of the main characters and couldn't let them go even after the credits had stopped rolling. Tata Amaral has certainly placed herself on the A-list of Brazilian movie makers.
