A Funny Joke with the Sad Reality of Corruption in Brazilian Society
3 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The corrupt banker and owner of the Banco Federal Luiz Fernando (Fúlvio Stefanini) negotiates a slush fund of fifty-million Reais (twenty million dollar) with the corrupt businessman Carlão (Zedu Neves). His graduated in Harvard assessor Romeiro (Cássio Gabus Mendes) 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 (Daniel Dantas) is proud of his twenty-five years of service working in the bank and worships Luiz Fernando. Together with his wife and teacher Angelina (Zezé Polessa), 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 (Giovanna Antonelli), 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 Angelina's account. Meanwhile Roberto is fired with 599 other clerks in a downsizing operation and decides to kill his former "friend" Luiz Fernando.

"Caixa Dois" is a funny joke with the sad reality of corruption in the Brazilian society. I have just seen this movie in a Mexican television with subtitles in Spanish, and I do not know whether overseas people might appreciate this comedy. First, the jokes are much related to Brazilian reality, where many people from different classes are in the end corrupt; in the story, only the naive Roberto ends honest and even his family mocks him. Further, the translation in the subtitles is very poor and loses many witty words and expressions, and the viewer that does not speak Portuguese will not understand the ironic double meaning or the play with words, and even the slang used in many lines. The acting is great; the beauty of Giovanna Antonelli is awesome and I have really had a good time watching this comedy. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Caixa Dois" ("Slush Fund")

Note: On 30 October 2009, I saw this movie again on DVD.
