For those who expect to see a superb film, I must tell "O Coronel e o Lobisomem" (The Colonel and the Wereworlf) might not be the right choice. It's far from being some which can attract millions of people to the movie theatres, since it does not have the fun of "O Auto da Compadecida" (A Dog's Will) and "Caramuru - A Invenção do Brasil". The film is not as beautiful as "Lisbela e o Prisioneiro" either, but has some sweetness which many ordinary films (which is NOT the case of the movies cited above) have left out. Adapted from a novel, the film keeps the flavour of the book and uses the magic of cinema. The mix results in a good product which shows how strong Brazilian cinema is at the moment. Although it's another countryside film, filmmakers from Brazil show that they can also work on big cities comedies, actions films, dramas e adaptation of novels. Come to Brazil and check it out.
