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

LIght and very funny
13 October 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

If you look for a movie which is light and can make you laugh a lot, "Caixa Dois" is a good choice. It is very well elaborated, the casting is excellent and the story flows quickly and we don't feel the time passing. It is based on a play of a great Brazilian actor and writer Juca de Oliveira. Juca has a long experience on theater playing and also TV novels. The story is interesting and deals with the problem of corruption in all levels of the society. But speaks in a funny way so that we can see it until the end which arrives quickly because it hold us all the time. For me, it is the best Bruno Barreto's film since "O Que É Isso, Companheiro". Brazilian films must also be like "Caixa Dois" and not only show the poverty and misery of the people or deal only with surrealistic themes. "Caixa Dois" is a film to get a message, to delight and to make believe that movies are this: something also for fun, not only for to be subject of long philosophical discussions. My note is ten.
