Biopic of Brazilian singer Tim Maia, from his childhood in Rio de Janeiro until his death at age 55, including his passage by the US, where he discovers a new style of music and is arrested for theft and drug possession.
The life of Renato Manfredini Júnior, Brazilian musician, from his first involvement with music, to his years in the punk rock band Aborto Alétrico, to the formation of Legião Urbana, in the rock scene of 70's/80's Brasilia.
Monjardin's O Tempo e o Vento is visually astounding. It has really great angles, locations, costumes, and some not bad action going on. The problem here is the lack of character development. Every scene is about plot development. It all happens so fast and with so little exposition that it was hard for me to believe in some interactions between characters. But kudos to some of the acting though, mainly Montenegro, Pires and Lacerda. There's not much to say about the other actors, as we don't get to see them as much. I just gotta point out that child actors should be given proper direction. Seeing a little gaúcho kid talking like a carioca is a slap on the face of anyone who speaks Brazilian Portuguese. And you should know what happens when you slap a man on the face.
