Maria do Céu Guerra,
Not even a single cringe scene on the whole movie! Keep it going Portugal!
Aníbal Augusto Milhais (João Arrais) is one of the many soldiers sent to Flanders during World War I. At the battle of La Lys, contrary to orders from the major, Milhões decides to face successive German offensives alone to ensure the withdrawal of the companions.
In the year marking the centenary of the 1st world war, we follow the path of the soldier Milhais, worth millions, through the memories of the war!
Based on actual events, Aníbal Milhais's story is built, where it denotes the good work of the team, especially at the moments inside the war.
At the same time, the filmmakers showed the life of the protagonist elder, with his family, especially the relationship with his daughter Adelaide.
The war sequences are pretty cool, even more taking in consideration the limited resources that the Portuguese cinema has. We do not see large crowds, but we see the nervousness, anxiety, the fear that lurks on the other side of the trenches, while the Fellowship plays a very important role.
I need to congratulate the team who made this movie for the courage to bring the Portuguese history to the big screen, in a tribute to a national hero, in commemoration of the 100 years of the end of World War I. As your commander said: "Tu és Milhais, mas vales Milhões" and Portugal can finally understand why in a movie theater.
For the record, there's not a single cringe scene in the entire movie, and that's already worth a star!
