Walter: [subtitled version] Death gives a reason to our lives. More important then that, death creates a special value for time. If our time on earth was undetermined, life on its own wouldn't make any sense and probably we would still be living without clothes and with a spear on hand. Death is the most powerful agent in nature, it comes to take away the old and make space for the new. Our effort to avoid it and make our short stay here something slightly memorable is what motivates us. Life only ...

A modern Brazilian movie

It's nice when we go to the the cinema with little or no expectations. Watching the trailer of "2 Coelhos", with many effects and explosions a la Hollywood, far from what we typically see in Brazilian films, we see the care in the production and editing of scenes and very little of plot of the movie.The trailer is well done, nothing spectacular or intriguing, but interesting enough to make us want to go to see this movie. I entered the room armed, waiting a sterile attempt to emulate the action films, empty and well packaged, I left the room surprised. In the end, the least caught my attention was the visual effects (there was nothing new) but the script, the editing and great performances.

It is not easy to summarize the plot, it is very intricate and full of twists and turns, false clues, comings and goings. Because of the choppy editing and flash backs, sometimes it's difficult to locate in time and space, but in the end, we understand everything all (or almost everything). I think the film needs to be seen more than once. Afonso Poyart, memorize this name, is a talented boy. He wrote the script and came out with a Phantom camera (that records one thousand frames per second) and many ideas in his head.From the style of the film, it is clear that the idols of Poyart are Fernando Meirelles, Christopher Nolan, Guy Ritchie and Tarantino. But he has plenty of talent and personality to create a unique style. I imagine the guy more mature, far from the grip of cinematographic references, and with more financial resources.
