André is an 18-year-old boy who lives near an aluminum factory in the industrial city of Ouro Preto, in southeastern Brazil. One day, after a fatal accident that has occurred in the factory, he is sent to the home of the dead worker, Christian, to collect some of his belongings. There you will find a newspaper that describes the last years in the life of the worker, a man who spent his entire life in the midst of poverty and social oppression. The first film directed jointly by Joao Dumans and Affonso Uchoa tells the adventures, loves and despairs of Cristiano, a fascinating character whose lyrical gaze immerses us in the reality of the most disadvantaged class in Brazil.

This is by far the best movie I have ever seen. It takes an adult's eyes and makes them see the problems of the youth. The movie is wonderful and the actors are excellent. I cannot believe that there are not more people that have seen this movie and have had the courage to write a review about it. I will go to see it again, because it's worth the price of admission. I hope more people will see this movie.

This movie does not deserve the bad ratings it got. It is simply a real comedy. The best part of the movie is definitely the soundtrack. The soundtrack is very beautiful and it is such a great harmony between the songs. I would recommend this movie to everybody, not just people who like Portuguese cinema. It is a very well made movie with many clever jokes and a great story. I hope there will be a sequel to it because I would like to see more Sao Paulo.

The story of this film is that of a man who finds himself in an unfamiliar city, and an impossible situation arises. When he goes to his son's, he learns that he has been forced to give up his job, which is about the only thing he has ever had, and the family is in dire need of money. So he decides to do whatever he can to get the family a job. At the same time, his wife is having an affair with another man. In an effort to get his family back, he goes on a spree of sorts, constantly changing the roles of the family members, and doing anything he can to save them. The thing is that this man is not really trying to make a change, but in an attempt to change things, it leads to the loss of all he had. The film is a great success in my opinion, because I actually found myself thinking about the characters as the film went on. I was rooting for the characters because I knew I would see that one thing I have come to know. There was a great story and the acting was incredible. A wonderful film to watch if you have an open mind.

I've seen the film, and thought it was extremely moving. Very well-done, great story, excellent acting, great music. I can't find a negative comment. This film deserves all the accolades it's gotten. As someone who's watched it more than once, I'm still remembering the scene with Ana. And my tears never stop coming. That's just the way it is with this film. It's a must-see, definitely worth your time. 10/10.

The great cinematography and the haunting music will stay with you for a long time. If you liked The Italian Job you will enjoy this movie too. I am not a fan of neo-noir or western style, I usually prefer a more serious or adult movie with more realism. But I can definitely recommend this movie to everyone. The story is great, it is all about the lives of three people, one more intelligent than the others. They have to go on a trip to another country, all three of them had some dark pasts. The music, I think is one of the best I have ever heard. I think it fits the movie very well. It is great, very emotional. This movie is a great piece of art and one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. It is a masterpiece, I will never forget it. 9/10

This film is one of the best I've ever seen. The performances of everyone involved are astonishing. I feel like I've been watching a movie for years, and that's because this film doesn't pretend to be anything else. I feel like I'm a kid again and having a really good time watching a movie. I'm totally into it. The director, Maribel Verdu, was the first person to actually direct a movie, and I think it shows. If you've ever had an opportunity to see this film, I highly recommend it. The film has a really great message, and you will feel so good after you've seen it.

The setting of this movie was different than usual. I guess it was a way to create a balance between the high-class girl who was playing the role of the low-class girl, and the low-class girl who was playing the role of the high-class girl. It was also a way to show the life of one woman, but also the life of the entire family. I really liked this movie because it was very sad, and very nice. It is the reason why I always watch a movie. It is the reason why I always go to the cinema. I want to experience something and I think this is why I love watching a movie. The story is very good and it really shows the life of a single mother, and how she makes her life as a single mother. The whole movie was very good, and it is a must see.

Forget the reviews - you've got to see this movie! It's a dream come true for me to be in a film with the two legends of Spanish Cinema. Almudena (Alberto de Leon) and Pedro (Guillermo Arriaga) have collaborated so well over the years and are really like brothers - and have come together to bring you a film that is an absolute must see! As a lover of Almodovar's films, I was very impressed by his approach to film, and was expecting this to be as good as The Spanish Assassin. And it is! The film takes you on a journey through the life of the two stars. You learn that Pedro is an alcoholic, that Almudena is a drug addict, and that the two men have really battled for control of their own lives, that they are both very needy for love, and that they really miss each other. However, in spite of their love, Almudena has to confront the fact that he has a degenerative disease, and that he has to leave her. Pedro wants to help, but it's a very difficult task because Almudena is a virgin. But, Pedro is determined to help Almudena and with his help she finds the strength to move on. In the end, they become a couple. This film is so wonderful - it is beautifully photographed, and has a very strong message to it, that you have to take care of yourself and care for the people you love. It is so emotional and you really feel the pain and pain of the characters in the film. This is a very emotional film and a very moving film, and I loved it! I was truly moved. One of the most important films of all time.

This is a very powerful and very insightful film. I felt like I was watching a "witness" as I watched this film. I think the audience feels exactly as the witness felt, even though I have not been in this situation. It is so realistic, that I found myself having to watch the film as if I was one of the witnesses in this case. I do not believe that it is possible to write a film about this situation and not mention it. This film is important because it shows the other side of the coin. If you don't think that it is possible to be affected like the witness was by what they saw, then you will not be able to understand what it is like to be someone that was in that situation. I think that it is important that people understand that what they see on the screen is what they experienced, and if that is not true, then it is a case of someone not telling the truth, or an injustice. This film is very important because it shows that what we see on the screen is what we experience, and I feel that it is important that people know that they can have this happen to them in real life.

A beautiful movie. I was speechless during the last scene, the best of this decade. Thank you Luc Besson. I've just had the privilege of seeing the whole movie in the first run. The best movie of the decade. I've seen it 4 times now and I can't stop thinking about it. My mother (now in her 40's) saw the movie with me and she was speechless and there was a genuine feeling of sadness. All she said afterwards was "Thank God for movies like this." She wanted to go and see it again. She loved it. Luc Besson has created a masterpiece. I can't wait for the next film. So proud of him. He deserves to be recognized for his "Creator's Gold" award. I must say that every scene in the movie, every expression of the characters, every movement of the camera, every camera angle, every sound, everything was perfect. There's no film like it. I'm so proud of Luc Besson. I was also so proud of all the actors, especially Christoper Macha (Daniel), Oscar De La Hoya (Emmanuel), Jon Voight (Danny), and Zora Neale Hurston (Patience). Thank you for giving us such a wonderful story. The best film of the year, in my opinion.

I've heard some negative comments about the movie, and I must say, the story was better than I expected. I love good dramas, and this is just as good. My wife and I could hardly sit through the first hour, but I really like the tension built up in the story, and the ending was perfect. The actors did a great job and I hope to see more of them. I've seen this movie 4 times, and each time, I got more out of it than the first time. It is a slow, but strong film, and it is a great lesson about what happens to people who don't have the money and skills to get ahead. It also is about the will to change your life and not sit at home with nothing to do, but what do you do when you get it, and what do you do to change your life? It's a beautiful film, with an unforgettable ending, but also a great message.

The cinematography is breathtaking. I was just about to leave the theater, thinking it was just another boring romantic drama, when suddenly I was struck by a dream sequence, an early childhood memory of my life. Then I found out it was a real story. The story is very rich. And although I don't like a lot of dramatizations, I found this one pretty good. The story is told through a series of dream sequences, and sometimes it is only those sequences that are presented. At other times, you see a group of people in the street talking, some going to a restaurant, etc. All of these sequences are more or less realistic, but they are also symbolic. The key of the story is the three women. These women were the children of the protagonist. The women in the movie were really fascinating, and they became very good as the story progresses. I liked all the actors in this movie. Most of them played their roles very well. The two American actors played very well. Finally, I would like to say that I hope this movie becomes a sensation. If it does, it will be the most influential movie of the year. This is my first review of a movie. I love this movie. I am so happy I saw it. The story is so amazing and the cinematography is so beautiful. I am so happy.

I saw "Guilherme Llamas" at the 2008 Metropolis festival in Berlin. Llamas is a very experienced director and one of my all time favorite filmmakers. I will always have a lot of respect for Llamas. But this film is not for the average filmgoer. Not because the subject is not interesting or interesting but because of the artistic perfection of this film. "Guilherme Llamas" is a masterpiece that I cannot even describe in words. It is such a complicated story that you have to understand the exact meanings behind it. The best thing about "Guilherme Llamas" is that it is very colorful, every scene is filled with colors and the film has a very vibrant color palette. I can't recommend it enough. I also have to mention that the film is extremely inspiring and it is also a very powerful film. A masterpiece. 10/10

I'm usually one of the harshest critics when it comes to films of the theater. And I can't understand how a film like this can be praised so highly. I'm not really into Argento's style. Maybe because I've never seen him at his best. That's not to say I can't appreciate a good film. But this one is far better than anything he's done. Even his very worst films are still very good, as they're always doing, but this film is still great. I can't say that it's his best, because I can't really judge. I don't like Argento as much as some of his fans do. But his films are always very enjoyable. I'm not one of them. I like them, but I can't stand them. This is a good film. The dialogue is brilliant, the performances are wonderful, the story is brilliant, and it is beautifully shot. I love this film. It's definitely my favourite Argento film. I wouldn't say that it's the best Argento film. I'm not that kind of guy who goes around raving about films. I'll watch most anything. And I'll even watch a lot of his films. I just don't think that Argento is a great director. I think he's an underrated director. I think he's one of the best. He's one of the best. But I can't really say that this is his best. Maybe it is. I'm not saying that. But I'll definitely watch it again. And I'll certainly see it again.

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this film. It is a film that everyone should see, as well as anyone interested in historical films. It is very unique in its structure, and the very way it is made. It takes place in 1930s Argentina. The film is largely told through the eyes of the three main characters: Claudia, a young girl who has been separated from her parents and is living with her grandmother in a small house in the country. When Claudia has to return to Buenos Aires, she gets in trouble with the local "motor barons" and the townspeople. She is not given much of a chance to deal with her problem, until she meets Tereza, the town girl who also is on the run from her father. Tereza is caught in the same situation, but she also ends up having to deal with a bunch of annoying local bullies. The acting is superb, and I can't imagine anyone else in the film. The three main actors are just great, and their characters are so real, that you actually begin to care about them. It is a very interesting and very entertaining film. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Argentine cinema.

The story of Eusebio is one of the best movies I've seen. Every movie and story has its own special things about it and this movie is one of the best. Eusebio is an excellent character actor and his performance is flawless. The direction is good and the music is good. The movie is very touching and it has a special charm. You can feel the love between Eusebio and Florinda. It's a great movie to see in cinema. I recommend to everyone.

This is a very good movie. Its an art movie, which I like. I am very glad that it was made. It has some great scenes, great acting, a great story. I think that the movie has many things that will make you understand the story. I also like that the director gave us the importance of the characters and the connection between them. Also, the movie is not boring, although I didn't understand many of the dialogs. The only thing that I don't understand is how can we make the movie if there are no words in Spanish? So far, I think that the movie is good, but I would recommend this movie to everyone who wants to see a good movie, a movie that is worth to see.

i have seen the movie about 30 times already. after the second time i was able to watch the movie in a very real way. because the movie has a real reality that most of the movies which are made in the future doesn't have. this is the reason why i think it is a great movie. for me the most important thing is the acting and the character and his/her relationships. so if you like real movies and not movies where everything has to be perfect you should watch this one.
