Disappointed...
12 November 2013 | by (São Paulo) – See all my reviews

I'm very disappointed with the result of this movie.

I have enjoyed the song "Faroeste Caboclo" since I was a children, hearing their verses and melody and imagining every characters and scenarios.

Actually, there is nothing that I have supposed that have showed in the movie.

The chronology is completely different of the original song, and the characters are so far that what it describe.

It starts well but ends in a poor way.

I really don't recommend.
