Slapdash mishmash.
16 July 2007 | by (new york city) – See all my reviews

I was hoping to hear some good samba and other Brazilian music, but each time some musical number began, the commentator returned to the totally uninteresting interview subjects, who may have been terrific musicians but unfortunately one could not find that out from this chopped up mishmash of interview fragments of people who had nothing interesting to say. The same subjects were gone over and over again without culminating in any substance. The subtitles were, for the most part, illegible since they were written in white script over white surfaces. Picture quality was uniformly poor and the entire production was amateurishly done. It is a pity when Brazilian music has such a rich history and past.
