After discovering the truth about being stolen by the woman he thought was his mother as a child, Pierre (AKA Felipe) must deal with the consequences of his mother's actions and must try to cope with his biological family.
Life in a middle-class neighborhood in present day Recife, Brazil, takes an unexpected turn after the arrival of an independent private security firm. The presence of these men brings a sense of safety and a good deal of anxiety to a culture which runs on fear. Meanwhile, Bia, married and mother of two, must find a way to deal with the constant barking and howling of her neighbor's dog. A slice of 'Braziliana', a reflection on history, violence and noise.Written by

Do you carry weapons, Clodoaldo?
To be honest, I can't really say yes and I can't really say no. But I'll show you our best weapon, which is this: a cell-phone. Me and the boys have all the contacts we need.
So, worst-case scenario, you throw the mobile at the bad guy, is that it?

I get it, I get it.

just one among the most overrated movie of this century
the movie is a waste of time.the director is trying to show desperate minds and alienation of upper-middle class people even though they are living in flats which are too close to each other.some scenes are fine, but they are not enough for a movie.script is poor, and characters are simply running here are there in the movie.
