Somos tao jovens, could have been done with a little more love ...
3 May 2013 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

A film that was supposed to be a cinematic biography of a great icon, was only the edge of the history of a great singer, they had plenty of time to make a movie based on the story of Renato Russo and when they decide to make something without much love . Have a good characterization of scenery and actors were perfect as their respective characters, including references to share Plebe Rude, Capital Inicial and Hebert Vianna. I also enjoyed the picture of the movie that refers to something even 70s, a filter medium yellowish like we're seeing a reminder that the video was a part of the life of Renato Russo.

I Do not say the film is bad, quite the contrary ... It is very good to know how come the inspirations for his songs and some developing him as a person and singer. I really liked it, but the film did not need to be loaded as well. But apart from that, I'm thrilled with the final minutes! ____ I just read an interview with the director of the film and he intends to make a "part 2" movie, showing Renato Russo and Legião Urbana. Now it's possible to accept the fact that the little Legião in this movie.
