The comparison of this movie with Buena Vista Social Club is way beyond my level of understanding, I must say... For me, this is a road-movie and a love declaration to brazilian music - that deserves it completely ! Period. Although one can be frustrated by the quick pace of this journey, this is another proof of how diverse brazilian music is ! Ok, some musicians have no real mesmerizing philosophical discourse during their interviews, but I view those passages as necessary - and interesting - steps to music, as it shows first of all human beeings living from and with music, and not cynical professionals as the star system can provide. Kaurismäki concludes its documentary with his decision to buy a bar in Rio where artists play every night. "Moro no Brazil", he says. Lucky man !!!
