Great Film!
25 October 2009 | by Sgt_Pepper1102See all my reviews

I saw this film at Valdivia's Film Festival last week and I loved it. I also met Esmir, he was a really cool guy, very enthusiastic and soulful and talented as well, and you can see all that in this film. It's a great movie, very well directed, superb acting, beautiful photography and perfect choice of music. It portrays a very surreal and psychedelic reality full of depth and emotion. It reminded me of "C.R.A.Z.Y." but this film has its own universe and pace, and it drags you I just wished it had ran a bit longer than 101 min, because I really wanted more, but at the same time I think it works perfectly. I'm not really into Brazilian films, I've seen a few, including "Cidade de Deus", so I could be wrong, but I don't think this movie has that Brazilian essence. Maybe it was because it takes place in a part of Brazil that is not very common to see which is Brazil's countryside. In my experience I've only seen a Brazil with crowded streets, very noisy and hectic, and that peculiar euphoria or enthusiasm all over the place, and this movie shows a completely different world. I swear I just wanna watch it again at least 3 times more.
