| Not a great film, but underrated anyway
I am writing this comment in the attempt to correct what I think is a great injustice; it is very rare that my rate is higher than the average IMDb user rating and this is one of these cases. This is not a great film, perhaps. It is imperfect. It has mostly static shots, and the production values don't compare to Hollywood ones. But it has enough of the essential qualities a film should have, such as a good story and a screenplay that tells it intelligently and heartwarmingly; it also has good actors (most of them anyway). The staging is stylized, rather than realistic; I think many people are not prepared to accept or even understand that. At the very least, its subject matter is very important for Brazilians; it has to do with the cultural history of Rio de Janeiro and, perhaps less so, of other Brazilian States as well.
