A Rare Good Brazilian Film
1 December 2002 | by HAL1994See all my reviews

Here in Brazil is very rare to see a good Brazilian film, and Brant´s new film is exactly one of these jewel. There are some flaws in the film, of course, but they are very minimal. The directing and acting in this film are very good!

Can´t wait to see another Brant´s new film!
