Bad acting, weak story. Don't waste your time.
12 November 2017 | by viviannepontesSee all my reviews

When I saw the title felt really excited, because I am a fan of the Sertão (translated as badlands) narrative. Well... This movie has a good technical quality, but wasted on bad acting. Also a very weak story, full of poor stereotypes. Very disappointing. I wish I could Un-watch.
