Beautifully done...
18 June 2007 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I've always been a fan of Beto Brant's movies, but I've to say that the man is taking his work into new dimensions. "Crime Delicado" was an amazing film, but Cão Sem Dono has blown off the charts, and for that I give a few reasons:

1. Mise en scene: perfectly done dialogues that sometimes looked as if you were watching a documentary.

2. Acting: amazing actors unknown to the general public. A fact that alone states that Brazil has lots to offer;

3. Regionalism: To see Porto Alegre and the gaúchos depicted in a movie is to get to know a little bit more about Brazil and its immense cultural diversity. The slangs, the habits, and the characters of another great metropolitan area in the country;

4. Literature: Brant shows great technique on adapting the work of a young Brazilian writer, Daniel Galera. While many Brazilians still avoid reading, Brant believes strongly that through great literature he can achieve great things.

Beto Brant assumes the fact that he lives in Brazil now. He looks no further but to this moment in time, optimizing what this society has and no one wants to see it: PURE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations, keep filming, keep the rhythm! Keep charging!
