Storyline

"Sons of Carnival tells the story of Anésio Gebara - the owner of a Samba School and Banker of an illegal lottery called "Animal Lottery" - and his 4 sons: Anesinho (white, 43 years old), Claudinho (businessman, white, 33 years old), Brown (Drum Major, mulatto, 33 years old) and Nilo (his father's bodyguard, black, 33 years old).The series begins on the day of the "Godfather's" birthday. Upon completing 75 years of age, Anésio Gebara is hit with the worst news in his life: Anesinho, his dearest son, commits suicide by shooting himself in the heart.From this moment on, Sons of Carnival relates the trajectory of the 3 remaining sons to fill the space left by the favorite son; the encounters and dis-encounters of the three "bastard" offspring until each one finds his place in the world. A saga which only ends in the last few seconds of the spectacular Samba School parade in Rio de Janeiro. Written by Anonymous

Great mini from Brazil
11 June 2006 | by (Asunción, Paraguay) – See all my reviews

I saw "Hijos del Carnaval" (Filhos do Carnaval) in HBO, and I must say that is the kind of miniseries that you don't want to end. Only six chapters with a wonderful photography of the Favela (poor neighborhoods), the whole underworld of gambling, the Samba... one of the most hottest dances in the world... and a word (and an event also) that could reunite the favela, the gambling and the samba: The Carnaval.

When you watched in the past, movies like "City of God", you still enjoy the photography, some terrible places, and the story, this miniseries come to refresh some concepts and prove once and again, that Brazil is a great place to tell stories charged with hard situations, a crude reality, and great scenarios.

A must see miniseries, A+ from Brazil, with the hand of HBO.
