A South American Dreamgirls (not!)
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're wont to check out a film with a cast of strong,independent (and very attractive)women who persevere in the face of adversity,then seek out Antonia. This fine film from Brazil is also a very well written,directed,photographed & acted tale of four young women from Sao Paulo who have been friends since girlhood,and who also boast of musical talent who just want to make it big in the (mostly)male dominated world of Hip Hop/Rap. The big chance comes when they get to open for a big Rap act & are well received. What follows is some bad breaks that pair down the foursome down to a twosome. This is the kind of film that in the wrong hands could have been turned into little more than a South American Spice Girls knock off. Let us all be eternally thankful that didn't happen. The film also boasts of a killer music soundtrack. It almost at times reminded me a wee bit of 'Dreamgirls'(only without a slimy manager). As the film is subtitled, a bit of a search may be in order (you can bet your bottom dollar you won't find it at your local Showcase Cinema). As it was released in 2006, it may already be available on DVD (it does have an American distributor,and carries a PG-13 rating for some salty language and a rather disturbing image of the aftermath of a bloody violent attack).
