Storyline

In São Paulo, the scheme of the corrupt DA Júlia and her mate, the lawyer Henrique with the gangster Maicom is discovered and sent to the Internal Affairs. Maicom is responsible for kidnappings, murderers and heists and his only chance is the support of the corrupt and powerful assemblyman Jader Kerteis that demands 2 million-dollars to help him. Meanwhile the "paulistano" Edgar, who killed a mother and her son two years ago in a car accident, invites the "motoboy" and thief Velinha to steal the escorted courier that is carrying the pouch with the money to be delivered to Jader. How their lives are entwined? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Walter: [subtitled version] Death gives a reason to our lives. More important then that, death creates a special value for time. If our time on earth was undetermined, life on its own wouldn't make any sense and probably we would still be living without clothes and with a spear on hand.

Under-appreciated modern foreign language film
19 January 2015 | by sadnemous-370-99583See all my reviews

Those who loved Kaminey, this one is the next level. Those who are fan of Tarantino, this one is must watch. Those who watched City of God, and is looking for good Brazilian movie, this is for you. Those who loves action packed, modern age movie, you'd better not miss this one Those who is looking for world-movies which are under-appreciated but is a potentially great work, you may consider this one. 1. The puzzle like story development, which has been neatly woven and will lead you to more and more clarity towards the ending of the movie. 2. Innovative application of excellent visual effect (reminds me Funky Pawa by Maati Baani, though the movie is earlier work.) 3. Unexpected twist and the graphic explanation for that.

I must thank denofgeek dot com for the suggestion - "25 under-appreciated modern foreign language films".
