A solid film
This movie is about more than the destruction of the Amazon Rain Forest in Brazil. It's also about the truimph of people who come together for a worthy cause. The Burning Season does a great job of communicating the passions of all involved. The corporate interests are a little stereotyped. But the movie's focus is on Chico and the lives of the rubber tappers. Their struggle is presented in a believable fashion.
