Wood & stock is a great animation, adaptation of the comics wrote by Angeli. The script surrounds two main characters, friends, middle age hippies, crazy about rock and roll that lives a incredibly sloppy life. After Wood's wife goes away to a religious trip, the two hippies stay at home and struggle to live by their own, with no job and no big responsabilities. Then they pursue an old dream of playing in a a rock band and that's how the movie develops. Another main character is Re Bordosa, belongs to the same crazy hippie generation of Wood and Stock that lives a promiscuous and very sloppy life as well. She is trying to ge better doing therapy. The character is dubbed by the rock singer Rita Lee in a very remarkable way, and Tom Zé, brazilian singer, dubbed Raulzito with his poetic way of talking. The movie is very much fun, a lot of jokes about society and common habits, but you may need a little patience to adapt to it's cartunish looking style. The sounds doesn't match with image syncrony perfectly, but it's no big deal. It just represents the first branches of the brazilian animation cinema that started to develop in the decade when this movie was produced. Great movie, entered to the history of brazilian cinema. Recommended to mature audience.
