Storyline

The corrupt banker and owner of the Banco Federal Luiz Fernando negotiates a slush fund of fifty-million Reais (twenty million dollar) with the corrupt businessman Carlão. His graduated in Harvard assessor Romeiro receives a provisional check from Carlão to be exchanged by a deposit in Switzerland in the afternoon. Meanwhile the naive middle-class bank manager of Banco Federal Roberto is proud of his twenty-five years of service working in the bank and worships Luiz Fernando. Together with his wife and teacher Angelina, they are paying a bank loan to buy their house and support their only son Henrique (Thiago Fragoso) in the university. When Carlão has a stroke and is interned in deep coma, Luiz Fernando invites his secretary Ângela, who is Henrique's girlfriend, to be his figurehead and use her bank account to deposit the dirty check. In return, he would pay seven hundred thousand Reais to her. Ângela accepts the bribe, but Romeiro commits a mistake and deposits the check in ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Awful in every way
15 April 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

A complete waste of both my time and money. Caixa Dois is one of the worst movies I've seen this year so far. Completely terrible screenplay, awful soundtrack, horrible acting, way too predictable script from beginning to end, jokes weren't funny at all (only people laughing were two 60 year old ladies with speech impediment). Most of the time it just reminded me of those ghastly Brazilian soap operas, with all the over-acting and badly shaped slapstick humor. And the music! Oh my God, the freaking music just wouldn't give up! It's almost like the editors realized the movie wasn't funny and tried to fix this minor issue by inserting hours of nice romantic-comedy-like songs on the back. The problem is it wasn't nice at all! It drove me crazy, actually. And please tell me, God, what is a great director such as Bruno Barreto doing with his life? First "O Casamento De Romeu e Julieta", and now THIS??? Geez, what's going on in this world??? What gets me real angry is knowing that these actors made a lot of money with this piece of cow dump. Overall, it just sucked.
