The film is a funny comedy about a group of teenage friends during the high school period that reveals important questions inherent in youth and tries (successfully) not to be a Brazilian American Pie or a kind of foolishness. Thanks to the talent and sensitivity of the director Arthur Fontes (of Surf Adventures), good actors (Stefan Nercessian, Maria Flor, Dudu Azevedo, Fernanda Paes Leme), the soundtrack is not rock from the 80's(Jorge Well, Tim Maia, Secos and Wet). Pode Crer! is a film that is worth being watched. The kids portrayed in Pode Crer!, Though not alienated, wanted more fun, dates and making plan for the future. Some interruptions of images in super-8 with a little background music break the pleasant narrative displayed on the screen.
