Powerful performances
31 August 2019 | by agreatstorySee all my reviews

It's not the heavy dose of violence, the steamy sex, or the vast human spectacle of thousands of miners slaving for gold, that lingers in my mind after viewing this smart, well-told story; it is the excellent acting of this stellar cast. Wagner Moura is typically terrific here and continues to display his very broad range of acting skills. Matheus Nachtergaele is always excellent, too. I was most impressed with Juliano Cazarré's fabulous performance. But all the actors excelled. And the direction by Heitor Dahlia was deft. This is a strong Brazilian film and I am chagrined that there are not more "critic reviews" for this gem.
