A really awful, pointless movie
This is a slow moving drama that is awful and pointless. It's as if the director strung together a series of scenes in some random fashion in the hope that it would gel into a movie. It did not! The story is a coming of age one but set in Brazil against a backdrop of changing economic fortunes. The story seems to go on forever without actually getting to the point or making its meaning known. The film might have some appeal to a local market or to a mainly Brazilian audience but I doubt it would have much in the way of global appeal. One might watch this for the backdrop of landscape set in Rio de Janeiro, or to see if the movie picks up the pace or gets better. It does not! The ending is just a silly and non-contributory one! Just a very disappointing viewing experience overall.
