Very difficult to watch, but worth the time if you can handle it
14 November 2001 | by danielll_rsSee all my reviews

OS MAIAS was a big flop here in Brazil, probably because audiences can't handle a production like this, turned to an intellectual side. Based on a novel by the great Portuguese writer Eça de Queiros, it was a sumptuous, richly textured production. However, it was very difficult to watch, especially if the person hadn't read the novel. It was great to look, very well acted and directed, carefully adapted, but it was hard to follow all the chapters.
