Some Brazilians today pretend to forget about the 1964
1 October 2019 | by mounsieurlapaoSee all my reviews

This movie is important because many Brazilians today pretend to forget about the 1964 "golpe militar" orchestrated by the USA. "Legalidade" is a romantic and political film that has as its background the city of Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil. I indicate this movie even though it is limited to only one political historical moment in Brazil. "Jango" (politician brasilian) is ridiculed in the movie while "Brizolla" is idolized. Highlight for the actor who played Brizolla (Leonardo Machado). Sex scenes are disconnected with the content of the movie and are desnecessary. My grade is 7/10.
