| Best Brazilian movie since Central Station
This movie does a exceptional analysis of the modern Brazilian society, showing the difference of classes and how this is deal inside the family houses. The viewers of the movie start seeing themselves in the role of the employers of the housemaids and realize that actually they already did a lot of situations that they consider absurd. This start causing a discomfort on the the spectator and make them think in the model of society that they live. With a strong direction but still feel free for improvisation, this movie is one of the best Brazilian in years. Since Central Station we do not see a movie that is so well related to Brazilian reality of segregation and difference of classes. Perfect performances (not only of the main roles, but all characters in the movie), beautiful photography and really well done soundtrack this movie put again Brazil on the track of countries who can show their reality in their own way.
