This story is suspenseful and will keep you on the edge of your seat for the most part. The Tupi people were well known for practices that we see in the film, and you feel for Hans. The Natives are indeed in this film, quite savage. These are not the hollywood spiritual peaceful people we see in the movies today. They boast about how horribly they slaughter and consume the portuguese, those whom they see as invaders to their land. This film isn't about that however. For once, a story is told from the weak and not the strong. I definitely recommend it, but you'll need a strong stomach for it.
