  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Babilônia 2000

    Although I think it lacks screen time and forgets its purpose on the get-go, this work by Coutinho is a delightful antagonism: facing the great 1999-2000's new year's eve, going to a slum to interview locals to speak about that event, showing how small life is: it's so ironic and has such political statement, it's impossible not to fall in love with these people. I already miss Fátima, Carolina and Roseli.

    a favela continua sendo o melhor lugar do mundo. a favela continua sendo o lugar de resistencia. a favela continua sendo um lugar anti-politica. a favela é um fragmento de uma sociedade nativa. a favela continua sendo um exemplo de convivio social. etc
