Very interesting movie on youth and the sudden discovery of reality
30 April 2007 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Paulo is an alienated medicine student who's ever getting stoned. His roommate, Leon, a brilliant afrobrazilian sociology student dates the beautiful and rich Leticia, who studies Architecture. What seems to be another inconsequent movie about young people, their passions and a love triangle grows into a very interesting story when one of Paulo's terminal patients asks him to find her sons before she dies. The three students find themselves involved in the hard reality of the live in the favela.

Good acting, very nice choice of locations settings, showing the beauty hidden in the most unattractive part of Rio de Janeiro, incredible soundtrack and, most of all, a very precise pace make this film a really good surprise
