Good movie and great music
2 March 2015 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

This was first Brazilian movie I ever watched, thanks to HBO.

Movie is quite interesting, showing us another perception of time traveling but thing that i like the most in this movie is the music. Especially main song that became one of my most favorite songs in all (btw, originally, song is called "Tempo Perdido" by Legião Urbana.

After this movie I started to watch more movies and series from Brazil. I have to admit that i like almost all of them.

Advice to all, try watching also Argentinian movies as well as Spanish.Of course, Emir Kusturica's movies, too. Maybe people that used to watch Hollywood movies will not be able to see their quality from first watching but it worth to try.

And I almost forgot one thing, Alinne Moraes is so pretty.
