In the comics, Cebolinha and Cascão are constantly bullying Monica due to her large frontal teeth. The actress who performs Monica had to place a fake pair of teeth to increase similarity with the original character. See more »
Turma da Mônica (Monica's Gang) has been part of Brazilian pop culture for decades and the comics are some of the first childhood reading memories for a lot of people (including myself). This lovely family live-action film adaption is like a tribute to the works of Maurício de Souza and a must see for fans from all generations. Daniel Rezende was a great choice for the direction and his filmography it's becoming one of the most exciting additions to contemporary Brazilian cinema.
