My husband, who has become a full-time dad, part-time “mom” and an entrepreneur on weekends surprised me very recently with a 13 year old indie film (available in Torrent- BRip copy) set in the slums of Rio de Janeiro in the early 60s. Knowing my love for arts and literature, he did not disappoint neither the film, which eventually landed on our top 10 favorite action movies of all time.
Written and spoken in Portuguese, this non mainstream film about drugs, crime, revenge and poverty featured unknown yet incredible cast and 200 non professional actors who nevertheless were instrumental in making this film very powerful. Main credits go to the writer, cinematographer and director who managed to pull a “Scorsese+Tarantino” like combination.
To our fellow movie lovers, this is not your average action movie. It’s fresh, funny and definitely awesome. A must -see movie before you die, we’re giving this film a 9/10👌👌👌
