The destiny of a regular poor boy in Brazil
24 October 2008 | by marcoaureliogvSee all my reviews

A chronicle of a bus hijacking in Rio, Brazil so as the kid life. It occurred on June 12,2000. Just watched this movie here in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It is about a poor boy (Sandro) who hijacks a bus and takes few hostages only in order to be famous and due he's high. So everyone must watch it. It's a portrait about an unfortunate guy who didn't have another choice in life except being a thief. Otherwise, he'd die. In other words, he didn't have a chance to live honestly. The movie has the usual and expected sad ending. Michel Gomes is the main actor who did a great work, besides some of other unknown actors. Maybe it could be a good lesson for those who intends to track a wrong way. As a matter of fact, Sandro had tried to have a better life but it seems destiny or fate did not allow him. In short, it happens nowadays in every country where poverty turns to a plague. Again: good direction and good actors. I'm sure an awarding is coming to this very film!
