Lula, Son of Brazil (Lula, o Filho do Brasil) Movie Reviews
User reviews on Lula, Son of Brazil (Lula, o Filho do Brasil)
I did not like this film and I do not think it is worth seeing in the theaters. I do not know much about Brazil but my best friend is from there and she wanted to see this film so i went with her and I was not impressed. I have learned from this film that Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is a very charismatic and loved politician in Brazil and I have also learned that the creators of this film absolutely adore him and it is very evident. The film was very shallow and there was no depth to the situations or characters. I did think that he film was well acted but that is not enough.
This film was not good at all and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters because it is not worth your money or time. I have heard that this film is Brazil’s most expensive film yet and it is kind of sad that all that money was not used in an effective way. The film has zero insight and it is all about worshiping the character and it was tiresome to watch. I did think that the film was well acted, unfortunately it was not engaging and way to melodramatic. I do not know much about Brazil and it’s history or politics and I do think that the film was pretty informative about those things but overall I was not impressed.
This is a true story about a working class boy who moves to the nation’s financial capital and becomes one of the most influential politician in Brazil, the film is directed by Fábio Barreto, Marcelo Santiago and stars Rui Ricardo Diaz, Glória Pires and Juliana Baroni. I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I have heard that this is the most expensive film that has been made in Brasil and it is really unfortunate that it is not good at all. The film did a lot of worshiping but there was no insight and I became bored really fast. The film has good intentions but it felt like a propaganda and something that I used to see in Soviet Union. I did not have a good time watching this film and I do not think it is worth the price of the movie ticket.
