These guys have guts!
4 October 2005 | by m67165See all my reviews

This movie is for people that do not take politics too seriously. And also for those who are OK with jokes that obviously refer to marijuana, for anyone old enough to understand them. These guys have guts, and I'll tell you why.

The Military Rule in Brazil was no fun at all, if you were a communist, or even a person who likes democracy. I was too young to notice, but people were simply getting killed, or vanishing, and sometimes even the Government did not know who was responsible. There were underground organizations of both right and left-wing radicals raising hell, and the media were censored. Some on the left were just too unexperienced to really help in the fight, but they tried anyway. This movie laughs about it.

Of course, the ridiculed bad guys in this movie are in the Brazilian Army, defending the Dictatorship. But the heroes are a bunch of delusional idiots, and I am sure some communists will hate to see their political faith laughed about in this way. I am not sure this will translate well for international audiences. But I am glad these guys had the courage to laugh about it. And I believe in the healing power of humor
