Tragic story
7 August 2009 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a young man full of dreams who was tragically killed by British police when, in search for terrorists, committed this horrible crime. Jean Charles's only dream was to some day return to his homeland after being able to help his relatives faraway in Brazil. I had read a lot of news about Jean Charles, his family and friends, and his plans, but I never had thought about his life story becoming a film. This idea was great because brings up this happening for people and authorities to think about life value. This was not only Jean's but many other men's dreams. The film portrays this incredible story. Lead actor Selton Melo does an incredible job when he embodies Jean's dreams, sorrows and abrupt death. His acting is, of course, great. Overall, definitely worth going to see.
