Trivia

The last public appearance of Vargas was in the inauguration of a Steel Mill in the state of Minas Gerais, 300 mi northern of Rio due Janeiro, a couple of days before his death. The movie was shot in a Thermal Power Plant in the neighborhood of Rio, inaugurated in 1968, 14 years after Vargas' death. Worse than that is Vargas walking alongside a pipe-rack built and erected in 2005, half century after his death. See more »

Good film.Bad actor
24 August 2014 | by colarusso-1See all my reviews

Excellent historical film. Excellent production. The film was made exactly in the real place, the "Palacio do Catete". All the historical background is fantastically precise and I consider this film one authentic lesson of story. The great majority of the actors have a very good resemblance with the historical characters, but Toni Ramos has nothing similar to Getulio Vargas. I know that he is a famous soap opera actor at my country, and, maybe, this was the reason of this dreadful choice. Other thing: the music tries to imitate Arvo Paert's work. Exactly today I saw the film, the day of the 60 anniversary of Vargas suicide.
