Good morning, Veronica is a very nice Brazilian surprise on Netflix. With a good quality script, aided by the excellent criminologist and writer Ilana Casoy, the series features some very credible characters such as the psychopath Brandão and his abused wife, Janete.
The direction is convincing, but there is certainly room for improvement. Brazilian crime dramas still suffer a bit, specially in the action scenes and here this can be noticed at times. Not top notch, but good enough.
The cast is somewhat uneven. Du Moscovis and Carmila Morgado, in the roles of the problematic couple, are extremely good and convincing. The protagonist, Tainá Müller, feels very restrained and sometimes fails to demonstrate the expected emotions, especially in her family sequences. But she shows some growth throughout the series, improving at the end. Some other actors are ok, but the other policemen and criminals offer nothing more than overacting caricatures, resembling bad characters from soap operas.
In general, despite having points which can be improved, it is a very interesting series that is worth watching. Just give it a chance.
