      Audience Member It is not a good movie, and if it was not for the romantic background, it would be another reasonable movie about the struggling life of the low income Brazilian families as well as a very nice picture of the deteriorating modern architecture in Rio that never receives maintenance. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Proibido Proibir é um filme brasilo-chileno de 2006, do gênero drama, dirigido por Jorge Duran ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member This tale of a tabooed attraction between a pair who vastly differ finds itself in the middle of a life-threatening conflict. I loved this film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member What an utterly engrossing and enriching movie. Set in the heart of Rio this is a story about three lives bound together by both love and tragedy. It is a beautifully balanced and very well directed film that also explores the reality of day-to-day poverty and police corruption in modern Brazil. Highly recommended. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Excelente película. Es un retrato pesimista, desde el punto de vista de los jóvenes, acerca de los bajos mundos de Brasil. Tres universitarios, se ven enfrentados a la policía corrupta, al fracaso, a la miseria y estancamiento de la sociedad en la que viven. Es cruda, pesimista, pero tremendamente realista. La fotografía y los escenarios son notables. Absolutamente recomendada. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Simplesmente incrivel. Muitas histórias reunidas deixam o enrewdo envolvente. Acertou também na escolha dos atores. Uma pena ter feito mais sucesso lá fora do que aqui. Vale assistir e comentar.
