A perfect story with wonderful music. Based on a true story, it showed us the bittersweet struggling path of the duet. Such a well-told story, and so many musical treasures made it simply a must see!
Brazil is a rich country when music tradition is concerned. And every successful musician has a story to tell. This is one of them, tells us how music changes life and how life enriches music.
I love folk music and the Brazil music is a major factor when I picked up this DVD. It does have a great number pieces of beautiful music flowing through the movie, which are far beyond most of the musical movies I've ever seen. Moreover, it is a good drama at the same time. The emotions, the feelings, the lives of all characters are well expressed.
Go see it whenever and wherever you can find it. I bet you'll love it like I do.
In my own opinion, it will certainly win the best foreign film in this year's Oscar.
