Surprise! Zuzu Angel is a good movie
17 August 2006 | by utena-1See all my reviews

I did not expected much from Zuzu Angel. The critic was not favorable here in Brazil and after Olga I got really suspicious about historical movies specially made by Globo films. But I got to the movies and i like Sérgio Rezende work. He made good choices.

It's not an all perfect movie, but it's reliable, not unfair to the historical facts and the acting is excellent. Made for the masses? Yes. But movies are made to the great public and must be enjoyable. I think every Brazilian should watch. It reminds me Antigone, specially the court scene. No matter what are the laws of a country, the family has the right and the obligation to give rest to their beloved kin.
