EXCELLENT MUSIC, Extremely ENJOYABLE.
1 May 2007 | by joaomiSee all my reviews

Excellent music,visually beautiful, extremely enjoyable.

It is the best way to learn about this special Brazilian rhythm. I personally do not like to watch a documentary but "brasileirinho" is worth it.

As a Brazilian, I did not know about the "chorinho" roots and learned a lot through this documentary.

This is a special kind of music and its interpretation I would like to treasure it at home.

The film direction is very good and the photography extremely attractive. I would like to express my appreciation to the director MIKA KAURISMAKY for being so thoughtful in making such delightful movie.

thank you

Mauro Joao
