Three Childhood Friends, Three Fates
24 August 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the slum of Capão Redondo in São Paulo, the twenty-third anniversary of Marco Aurélio a.k.a. Macu (Caio Blat) will be celebrated with a "feijoada" (a typical Brazilian dish of black beans and pork) and beers promoted by his mother Dona Sônia (Cássia Kiss) and their closest friends. Among the guests are Macu's childhood best friends Jaiminho (Jonathan Haagensen), who plays soccer in Spain and is waiting to be summoned by the coach to the national team, and Pibe (Silvio Guindane), who has a baby and is living with Macu's former girlfriend Claudia.

Macu owes money to the dangerous criminals Serjão (Eduardo Acaiabe) and Napão (Du Bronx) and will host a boy that will be kidnapped by the delinquents in order to pay for his debts. Along the day, Macu stays with Jaiminho and Pibe recalling their childhood together. By the end of the day, Serjão and Napão tell Macu that they have changed their plans and the kid will not be kidnapped, but Jaiminho instead. Further, he shall meet the powerful Dr. Venceslau (Antônio Petrin) for further instructions. Now Macu is to be on the horns of a dilemma between his friendship for Jaiminho and the fear for the gang of his slum.

"Bróder" is a heartbreaking story about three childhood friends and their fates that unfortunately reflects the reality of our society. Macu is a victim of the system, living in a slum without any chance in life and ends in the claws of crime. Pibe has left the slum but is stalled in a low-class life without perspective. Jaiminho has had the chance to improve his life playing soccer and moving to Europe, but without forgetting his origin and friends. The expected tragic conclusion is very realistic. Caio Blat is among the best Brazilian contemporary actors and once again has a magnificent performance. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Bróder" ("the pronunciation of brother in Portuguese")
