A good story is not its storyline, a story is its theme. The theme may hide behind the plot and only gradually show up.
This movie tells a good story. Its storyline follows a father who is looking for his runaway son. The theme behind it is the structure of the Brazilian society, the separation of the bourgeois class from the poor, the destitute, the hopeless. You should see it, even if it's only the Portuguese version. No, you should try to see it just because it IS the Portuguese version.
