how can this movie only have so few votes?
10 August 2011 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I have used IMDb for many years, but never bothered to make an account. But Olhos Azuis is such an incredibly good movie that I had to make a review, hoping that this will help more people to get to know this film.

I borrowed the DVD from a friend, but was sceptical and thought it might be some mediocre low-budget movie. But man, was I wrong!

The cast is just great, all lead characters (and the rest as well) are played very convincingly. At times funny, at times very tough, this movie really left a mark on me. Its main topics are racism and abuse of power - which might sound a little boring - but believe me, you will get totally sucked into the action - and the political messages of it are IMHO very important in this the era of the American Empire ;)

I am sure that if the movie wasn't so critical of the USA, it would have gotten a lot more attention in the media (outside of Brazil). As most of the dialogue is in English, you don't have to be Brazilian to understand it. So, do yourself a favour and watch this moving and utterly interesting movie if you get the chance!
