A Brazilian film not unworthy to be seen
17 November 2011 | by Atreyu_IISee all my reviews

Strong movie that deals with serious and heavy stuff. A heavy atmosphere is almost omnipresent. Some may argue it as too slow-paced and boring. Slow-paced, that it definitely is. Boring? Well, it does require disposition for being slow-paced and almost silent.

This is a minimalist story, although sometimes the greatest stories are the "basic of the basics" (not in this case). That said, it's far from being pleasant because it deals with such things as poverty, physical and psychological aggression, betrayal, despair, pessimism, the sound of silence, suffer, loss and tragedy.

Thiago is the lead character. He's not very talkative but his sad eyes and face tell everything we'll ever need to know. His brother Felipe is the second lead character and another important character. Through him we can learn a lot too.

Thiago da Silva Mariz and Wallison Felipe Leal Barroso deserve very good praise for their acting.
