Another great Brazilian film
3 October 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

In one session fuller, if not most, of the Brasilia Festival of Brazilian Cinema, My Country was presented the public with warm applause greeted the end of the session on a Saturday night, the family drama played to Rodrigo Santoro and Débora Falabella The film manages to involve the public in a story of encounters and re-encounters from the death of Father (Paulo José) and the discovery of a distant family secrets. The candid interpretation of Deborah Falabella sensitizes the viewer and makes the scene as drama goes. The soundtrack fits well and striking photography come together to ensure a good show.

Another great Brazilian film
