Sergio is a movie that we didn't asked for, but we actually needed it and i'll explain why. I bet you're one of the guys coming here because you wanted a political/diplomatic focused film, but let me tell you this:
You don't need it! And the movie doesn't care to give you that either. We are living in a pandemic time right now and before that, so many political conflicts all over the world, elections, threats, commercial warfare, you name it. Sometimes we need to avoid that a little, see life in a more humane perspective, maybe watching someone's personal story.
Sergio's not about some diplomatic genious and his achievements, but about his life, love and regrets before and while facing death. It's about the human lesson he gives us of how things should be handled in many perspectives; as a father, diplomat, lover, friend and leader. He did what he tought it was right and in the end, after everything crumbles, he's still loved and remembered to this day.
To see more about his diplomatic career, you can watch his documentary.
I liked very much the movie and for those who are complaining about his accent, you shouldn't, Sergio was a brazilian citizen. Also, congratulations to Wagner Moura and Ana de Armas for the excellent acting on this one, looking for more shows from both.
