Another precious pearl from Brazil.
23 September 2017 | by sergioosolevSee all my reviews

I have to say that i'm a fan of Brazilian movies! After saying that, let's focus in this one. A very intense drama about two friends in search of a better life. Very well acted and directed, this one keeps us on the edge till the end.

Another one that goes to my recommendation list.
