Inspired by a true story, the film is a powerful drama, exciting, which is based on the conventions of the genre to make a portrait of the social apartheid rooted in the country, without falling into pessimism, leaving several seeds of hope. Without sweetening the reality, showing the routine struggle for survival, involvement with banditry, director Sérgio Machado, the same director of Lower City, leads a narrative to some familiar spot, with colors and rhythms of Brazil (anyone remember the movie of Maryll Streep Music of the Heart?), packed with classical music, rap, chorinho, alternating scenes at Sala São Paulo and in the Heliopolis slum.

Lázaro Ramos is the conductor of the orchestra and the film, bringing the dramas of boys music students, each with its own peculiarities, which summarize the story of life of the young residents of the region and which are, according to statistics, the biggest victims of this apartheid. Fortunately there are many similar work to what is Baccarelli Institute, teaching art and sport, rescuing self-esteem of these kids, preventing die early.

It's hard to talk about the technical aspects of the film when a production excites us so much, but highlight the genuine speeches of the boys, arising from the shantytown, inserted in their lines naturally, the wonderful soundtrack, photography, well-structured script. The film could further explore the relationship of the boys with their families, but the director chose highlight their relationship with Laerte, the teacher. There was little marketing of this work with an incredible potential for communication with spectator - I think from Two Sons of Francisco does not appear in Brazilian film with so popular footprint, able to thrill even the most skeptical of viewers.
