  • Not good even for a soap opera by 1

    Movie producers wants money, ok, we got it. That's business. So, to make a film about a corruption investigation seems legit. Pitty that this movie is totally biased. Surely it helped in the current society polarization in Brazil. Hypocritical as it can get.

  • A Manichaean view of car-wash operation by 1

    The film is extremely Manichaean. There is no middle ground: there are the good ones and there are the bad ones. The film shows an idyllic vision of the car-wash operation, without addressing controversial aspects of this operation, such as the selective disclosure of wiretapping carried out by the public prosecutor office and the federal police, wiretapping of conversations between attorneys and clients, and the protection of the Judge Moro to people and politicians linked to the PSDB political party.
