Did You Know?


Nelson Xavier isn't related to Chico Xavier despite the same surname and both men were born in the same state, Minas Gerais. In fact, Nelson has said that before making this movie people would often confuse both of them and keep calling him as Chico Xavier, which he didn't like much. But when he read the book about Chico's life and the film script, he felt transformed by everything he knew about the medium and he decided to play the role of Chico in his later life. See more »

This movie is not just amazing because it get our attention since the first beginning... It is also amazing because it makes us think about what really matters in life.. It gives us a different perspective about different kinds of subjects and mainly because everything in the movie is real... comes after real events... Chico Xavier was not only a leader for a specific group of religious people, it is an example for all of us. I got my French friend to watch it and he is not spirist. He loved the movie, because it is not a movie for Brazilians, it is a movie for people who think deeper about life. Chico is the greatest recent example about how Christians should act. A man whose name can be love.
