A fascinating "journey"
16 February 2015 | by marklear-1See all my reviews

If you get a chance to see this film (especially on the big screen), take it. You will enjoy an amazing story of three brothers who explore some of the rainforests in Amazonian Brazil, and interact with the locals living there in ways that are unexpected. We found the subtitling in Australia to be especially good for most of the film, and certainly had to concentrate on the unfolding story. This story heads off in unusual (but relevant) directions quite frequently, and the effect of this is to wonder what will happen next. The impacts of different tribes of the native peoples, and the "whites" both in the forests and back in the cities make for quite a tense viewing. The only weakness I found was the last 15 minutes or so, when the clarity of the film's story wandered, and I found it a little disjointed. However, this is a fantastic yarn, with a most satisfying (and somewhat ominous) conclusion.
