Based on the true story of Zuzu Angel, a famous Brazilian fashion designer in the 70's, who searches for her son Stuart, a member of a leftist university group who suddenly disappears during the darkest era of Brazilian military regime and media censorship.Written by
Zuzu Angel is surprisingly a good movie. I didn't expect much from it cause it was made almost totally by a TV team (someone already noticed that it sometimes seems like an afternoon soap opera). Yes, the soundtrack is really obvious, and just everything is explained, which kind of irritates anyone used to watching good creative movies. I believe this simplified way the plot deals with the flashbacks and the political situation in Brazil, for example, is a way of trying to get in touch with a wider public. Many people may dislike it (my case) but we can understand it (my case again). However, both the great performance of all the actors - specially Patricia Pillar, who looks better and better every day - and the intensity of the story make sure it's worth to go to the movies and watch Zuzu Angel.
