I am looking forward to this movie, given the great movies out of Brazil and/or on Brazil, like City of God,Bus 174, Amores Perros,or the Crime of Padre Amero, among others supspect this movie may be similiar in Nature to Favela Rising as I tend to watch anything from or about that region they come with a totally different perspective in terms of what to expect from a film.
