Disturbing Documentary that Should Be Recommended to Those Against the Capital Punishment
20 August 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In São Paulo, a crew follows the Anti-Kidnap Task Force in their operations along four years. The footages show victims, kidnappers and a group of elite force formed by skilled police officers in action, rescuing the emotionally destroyed victims from their captivity in moving scenes.

I was reluctant to see this documentary since I do not like sensationalism. However, the result is an impressively disturbing documentary that explains the origins of kidnapping in Brazil and how this hideous crime has increased along the years. "Sequestro" should be recommended to that part of the Brazilian society that is against the Capital Punishment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Sequestro" ("Kidnapping")
