Goofs

Veiga was laughing for real in the take used for the final scene when Brandão gives up. It was supposed to have a serious tone during rehearsal, but in the end he chose to keep the unexpected reaction. See more »

Very Interesting
17 September 2014 | by carlos-425See all my reviews

For those who enjoy philosophy, this short film is very appealing. Developed in Brazil, the writer and actors were successful in creating an intriguing circumstance of discussion. The film has a special setting - inside a car, two cops discuss life and death while driving the streets of Rio de Janeiro. It's quite amazing how they are able to discuss life while driving around working - it shows how a simple day in their lives can all of a sudden take a turn into their inner most thoughts and fears. Although very simple, there is obviously great thought behind the work. The way the camera rolls, from inside the car, we can better understand how difficult it was to film and gather the emotions among the two partners. The short movie was well written, well played and well developed. Waiting to see more creations from these guys in the future!
