  • Delivers more than anticipated; a Brazilian gem
    June 8, 2017

    This is a nice movie, offers surprisingly good acting and builds multi layer story very successfully despite some setbacks with its minimal budget. Director Maximilian Moll does a wonderful job to develop a story on prejudice, love, companion, sacrifice, and impact on social values on lifestyle choices. I think, presenting this movie as story of a street hustler and his long-time customer does injustice to the multi-layered scenario. My five star goes to Daniel Passi particularly, who delivers tour de force performance reflecting complexities of a hustler who struggles between his personal emotions and real-life facts. A small gem from Brazil cinema.
