poetic carnival

It is pure poetry, but it also reveals the social gaps that are disguised in the Brazilian geography by the little distance between the richest and the poorest. The scenes inside the whale are especially delicate and happen slowly as if they were in a particular world. It also draws much attention the enormous talent of the actor who lives the younger brother, Luan Marques.
