Did You Know?

Trivia

The storyline has a lot in common with the story "By His Bootstraps" written bij Robert A. Heinlein. The paradox of a person from the future telling something to his earlier self is called an ontological or 'Bootstrap' paradox, after the story from Heinlein. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to the comment before, "Creep", sung by Wagner Moura, does not represent an anachronism. The song does not play at the party itself. Instead, it was used in two scenes to match the feelings that Zero was experienced at the time. Any song composed until then (2011) could have been included in the soundtrack, as long as it did not play at the party. See more »

Refreshing title about time travels
25 June 2017 | by davidlosadagSee all my reviews

In this film you will face a different and passionate story about time traveling, with an unexpected ending. The music is brilliantly joined and the actors are good enough to empathize with them and enjoy the story. Although sometimes you don't have time to read subtitles, it is very well made Brazilian film, I recommend it to see with your loving mate (and available in Netflix by the way).
