Propaganda to misrepresent people and political parties from Brazil
26 October 2017 | by edugularteSee all my reviews

The film does not promote a healthy discussion about Brazilian politics, delivering a material that is so inconsistent with the public, based on untruths and full of bias, distorting reality to the point to turn judges and prosecutors into saviors of the homeland, when in fact, they come to practice irregularities, lawfares and abusive acts contrary to the law of this nation. All this to justify a mere political persecution, and in the end, they are even benefiting the real corrupt ones who took over the country.
