Maybe the best brazilian film ever
6 August 2001 | by Ricardo SabbagSee all my reviews

Ganga Bruta is, maybe, the best brazilian film ever made. As, for sure, Humberto Mauro is the greatest brazilian film maker. For its age, the movie continues to brake patterns of narrative line, building modern structures of editing and screenwriting.
