To kill or don't?
15 July 1999 | by Quest-5See all my reviews

I've just seen "Os Matadores" and I got to say: It's a great motion picture!! With an outstanding cast, the movie tells us about the story of brazillian killers, especially near by the border Brazil-Paraguay. The movie has a good music by Andre Abujamra and also, a good cinematography. The director, Beto Brant, guide the scenes with wiseness. A true excellent movie!!
