a national of the best films I've ever seen!
26 November 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I'd seen the trailer for this movie in theaters and thought it would be like most other films, which has no plot, and calls for sex scenes to give audience, apparently, I was wrong, big time.

The film is spectacular, considering that this is not a those films that usually stand out when talking about the violence in Brazil, such as Elite Squad, City of God, between more ...

this is the first national film I watch, and I can say that I really liked, and at any time to distract me, worth watching every second of this great national production, a comedy and history novel, very well done, with a bit of fiction too, haha Recommend and much, congratulations by the Director, continue producing more films of this genre and that is not appealing to most movies are national.

Watch, you will not regret it!
