Really Bad
5 June 2006 | by Holy_BloodSee all my reviews

I saw this at the Tribeca Film Festival and have to say that this movie is REALLY BAD. I strongly suspect that a Brazilian political party put this together in order to influence public opinion.

The main character is a medical examiner flown in from San Francisco in order to do an autopsy on the body of a woman believed to be a major political player in Brazil. His wife recently died and he keeps having hallucinations of her naked. This is the best thing about the movie and it is completely silly. He comes into Brasilia from San Francisco to perform the autopsy and identify the body, which he immediately does, then spends the rest of the movie hobnobbing with Brazil's elite political movers and their hangers on who all ask and put pressure on him to come to a conclusion. That's the whole movie.

You'd think some one could come up with a much better movie than this one to focus on corruption in the Brazilian government. It never really goes for the jugular. Trust me, skip this movie.
