This well written,scripted and acted film was a nice surprise!
It's amazing how a low budget film can easily outshine most of the garbage coming out of Hollywood these days with huge budgets.
I really enjoyed the on screen chemistry between "carmo" and "marco". These characters were heartfelt and realistically portrayed. The supporting characters were quirky,funny and very entertaining with their idiosyncratic schisms. It doesn't hurt that Mariana Loureiro is a total hottie and an incredible actress. I Highly recommended this Brazilian "road film" and I bet it that will keep you laughing and feeling good right til the end. I wish it was shot on film instead of digital but i'm sure cost was a concern in this film's budget,
