Don't expect it to be any closer to City of God or Elite Squad!
28 March 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It's hard to follow the story and sometimes you're under the impression that there's something wrong, since you can't really connect the different pieces to build something coherent.

It's built on top of a number of stereotypes, it narrates an important period of Brazilian history without the proper attention that it deserves.

I'm amazed to see that such a bad movie might have cost around BRL 478mi, which is as off today around US$ 288mi. Worst than that is the fact that most of it might have come from public funds.

There's a number of interesting Brazilian movies out there that you should be watching before you spend your time with this one.
