coming of age saga... sort of
The role of a lifetime for Lima Duarte, the Walter Matthau or Leo Mckern of Brasil! Although he stars - and gets the girl, against all odds - the Globo creative people thought it wise to make ample use of their stable of stars and insert several less interesting characters as mere... eye candy? The usual suspects are there, in supporting roles really... and Betty Faria and Jose Wilker (isn't it? Naming him by sheer memory here...) make for... yet another improbable couple actually!

A special telenovela nonetheless, rife with patriotic pride and the triumph of the everyman! Technically average for the most part, since shot for television and thus, on a tighter budget, the series is still epic in scope... An unmistakable Globo production!
