Quotes

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 ...

So Good that Hollywood Is Planning to Remake
5 May 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In São Paulo, the scheme of the corrupt DA Júlia (Alessandra Negrini) and her mate, the lawyer Henrique (Neco Villas Lobos) with the gangster Maicom (Marat Descartes) is discovered and sent to the Internal Affairs. Maicom is responsible for kidnappings, murderers and heists and his only chance is the support of the corrupt and powerful assemblyman Jader Kerteis (Antônio Roberto Marchese) that demands 2 million-dollars to help him.

Meanwhile the "paulistano" Edgar (Fernando Alves Pinto), who killed a mother and her son two years ago in a car accident, invites the "motoboy" and thief Velinha (Thaíde) to steal the escorted courier that is carrying the pouch with the money to be delivered to Jader. How their lives are entwined?

"2 Coelhos" is the debut of Afonso Poyart as director, producer, writer, actor and editor with golden key. His work is visibly influenced by Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels); Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction); Christopher Nolan (Memento and Inception); and Fernando Meirelles (Cidade de Deus) in a Hollywoodian style of explosions and special effects with a budget of less than 2 million-dollars. The result is so good that Hollywood is planning to remake this film for a people that have difficulties to read subtitles.

The acting and the CGI are top-notch and the non-linear screenplay is well resolved in the end. If you have a chance, read the subtitles and enjoy this worthwhile movie. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "2 Coelhos" ("2 Rabbits")
