Biography of an oustanding, but mostly unknown, character of Brazilian Rap
26 October 2018 | by iradaoSee all my reviews

The movie title is not very good, since it is not about marijuana or legalization. It is about two rap artists who meet: Marcelo D2 (Renato Goes) and Luiz Skunk (Ícaro Silva) and how they manage to begin a rap/raggamuffin band called Planet Hemp, which was pretty inovative, at least in Brazil 1990's.

The photography shows a gray Rio de Janeiro without postcards, except by the arcs of Lapa, that helps to depicte a city with a lot of prejudice against black and poor people where there is police violence and truculence.

Besides than telling how a band was formed, the film is about how the character Skunk inoculates some thoughts and values inside Marcelo D2, that until now has sound solo career. Those values and thougths were already inside Marcelo but they only came out after his meetings with Skunk. Of course they are often smoking marijuana, what is forbidden in Brazil until now.

Very nice acting by Ícaro Silva and Stephan Nercessian, who plays Marcelo's father.

I missed anything about the other band members such as Gustavo Black Alien and B. Negão.

I won't analyze further because I don't want to create spoilers since it is the first review here.
