Storyline

This movie is about one of the worst periods for the Brazilian people. Shows the days of military dictatorship when the Brazilian people against the government were put in jails, tortured, and some of them assassinated by the military and para-military people. At the same time, the same government censored the press and didn't allow anything but news about three times-champion soccer team. While the people made parties, etc for the soccer team, in the underground, people suffered all kinds of torture. Written by Anonymous

The coward horror bravely shown
21 August 2020 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Excellent film on Brazilian military dictatorship (very well) made while authoritarian regime was still active. That explains some sitiations in which the movie could be expected to be nore critical (like in the text in the beginning, which talks about "two extrene sides" instead of about state tettorism and prople who resisted), but also highlights the impressive vourage of all the crew (they showed torture, the businessmen' involvement, and even that the lack of reaction of the average man was mediocre and no reason to be proud of). All actors did a great job, well directed by Roberto Farias, in a movie carefully built from the cinematography to the dialogs and soundtrack. It is one of the most important movies of the direst period of Brazilian history.
