What the film is about
29 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Beautiful and wonderful picture of Brazil. The film shows how the faith of a black, poor and unknown man makes him become a legend and one of the most strong symbols of the Brazilian multi-full-of-belief-faith. The more you watch, the more you want to see. There are moments when the hero makes friends, finds love, looses love, looses his faith and mostly finds his faith. Then he begins his path and his lonely way to wisdom and God and starts being followed by both simple and sophisticated people, by both rich and poor. Plus, the photography is amazing and the sound track is very original. Everyone who likes Brazilian culture should see this movie.
