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

if not for the good acting...
25 April 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I would have given it less than the 3 stars that I gave. The best acting, by far, was Daniel Dantas's. All other actors seemed slightly embarrassed - some too contrived, some too exaggerated.

I can't believe that in 2007 someone still believes that the same swear word repeated in every line happens to be funny. It is not. The plot, well, if that was a hole, you could find oil in it. Unfortunately, this movie did not work out not even as a lighthearted pastime. Bruno Barreto certainly could have done better as the subject, that of corruption, does hold some interest. I also thought he'd make more subtle or non-subtle comments on real cases of corruption, something that could pull chuckles because of its cleverness, but no. The very few references didn't work out well, either.
