A portrait of the political struggle in Brazil
16 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

The film is a documentary based on documents and testimony of several sources, that depicts accurately and impartially the life of politician and revolutionary Luiz Carlos Prestes. In the meantime, brings a historical and live picture of the Brazilian political and ideological conflicts that led to the outbreak of more than 20 years of dictatorship. By portraying the self-denials, struggles for political ideals, isolation and imprisonment that affected the personal life of Prestes, the movie distances itself from a typical narrative and humanizes this public figure well known in the history of Brazil. Unnoticed, the viewer is immersed in the Brazilian political environment and the dramas caused by the friction between classes and power.
