It was a joke??
23 February 2019 | by fivelocksSee all my reviews

Imagine that, in 1931, a film student won a camera from his father, joined friends and went out to film. Some good framing but nothing more. Several silent films are among my all-time favorites but this movie is simply ... amateur. If this is the best Brazilian film of all time then, definitively, I do not waste my time with any other.
