One of Brazil's finest films!
12 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I say that this is one of Brazil's finest films, that is not to say that Hollywood makes great movies, because I think that Hollywood makes about 1/15 films that are worth watching.

That being said, this film is fantastic. It is a perfect balance of comedy and drama. A little heavier on the drama I would say.

The acting in it is amazing. Obviously who stands out in the film is the main actor Wagner Moura. He is amazing in just about everything he does. This character was great for him because it is very different than what I am used to seeing him in. Excellent acting!

The film takes you on a journey of many emotions. You will laugh and would have to be near heartless not to cry. The character is someone who a lot of people can relate to.

The story is fantastic. If you are like me, who has seen as lot of movies, than you will be skeptical to see another "time-travel" movie. I can tell you that this one is very different. It has a great moral to the story.

On another note, this film also has some pretty good special effects.

Go watch this movie!
