This is Soap Opera


The director went wrong on his focusing. This movie looks like a big Soap Opera, but that's what you get when you hire a cheesy soap opera director to conduct a movie like this. Very cheap, and not worthy of its recognition. The critics are very correct in bashing this film. There were many brazilian movies better than this in 2004.

I agree. This movie is a waste of time, and it's so artificial and pretensious. That actress is terrible. Blergh. Two tumbs down.

It´s right that´s not neede close-ups in cinema, but Camila Morgado
isn´t a bad actress. Neither it´s a soap opera. Have you a father
graduated in cinema arts? Mine is. And he said that the structure of the film
wasn´t the same of a soap opera. And it´s NOT a waste of time. With it, I learned a bit of Olga´s history, and in it you can see a little more of
the violence of Hitler, Gestapo, etc.
That´s sufficient? No? So why not say I´m a brazilian, descending of Germans?
Boy, when I reply defending a film is to be good. Now mind why I have "Lord"
in my nick.

Nobody ever said the structure of the film was like soap-opera's, the language it uses is. And even thought the feelings Camila Morgado intented to convey were well-acted, she could have composed a more complex character.

Agreed. Almost turned the movie off but endured its over dramatic, under developed characters. But how to dress up a tale of foreign insurrection and pompous platitudes?
