This movie for me, was like felting all of my believes. with a nice calm, and slow rhythm that makes us experience this movie in a different way.
There is no rush or dialogs to explain the faith, its a matter to understand for your self, make you think things, re-think your life.
The special effects didn't interfere with the basis of the story, just make it more beautiful to watch!
People who are "Espiritas" will see their believes materialized, in gorgeous set, they use some nice locations, and transform they a little bit, but i think the idea was to show that heaven "Nosso Lar" is not so different from here on earth, on our world we just need to make it more peaceful, and less capitalist, less noise, less selfish.
i'm not a review writer (its my first) but i felt it would be important to write what i felt.
