The modern samurais
26 February 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in its final stages of post production in New York City, right before it went to sound editing. And it was sensational, fantastic search job, a documentary that every Brazilian or not, UFC fan or not has to see. An anthropological study of a family of almost forgotten heroes that travel for a century between Brazil, Japan and United States.

In 90 minutes of struggle merged and fights with interviews, the documentary covers 3 generations of this family and their beliefs and philosophies on fighting and life.

Here is where the first UFC (The Ultimate Fighting Championship) and the "Vale Tudo" (Anything Goes) spread around the world with their bowls of açaí.

A must go see.
