Beautiful images, great acting, precise production design and a correct screenplay for a movie that works fine as short sight over the much superior story you find in the Erico Verissimo's masterpiece "O Tempo E O Vento".
In the Verissimo's epic story it is possible to discover multi-layers not only about the historic facts but also about the characters that are mixed to the real events. Such complexity is transformed in a fluid novel that makes the reader dive in a time it doesn't belong to as well as get to know the characters as they were close relatives.
You can see in the movie the respect for the story, but told in a quick pace it is possible to uncover only the surface of it. In this case it is less for the qualities of the movie and more for the grandness of the "O Tempo E O Vento".
