Critic Reviews for Linha de Passe
Salles and Thomas's movie contains some extraordinary moments and its fine editing injects a dynamic cross-cutting energy.
Walter Salles' humanistic approach is evident in this film, which offers a poignant look of how Brazil has changed over the past decade.
This story of four brothers in São Paulo has a lively neorealist vibe that's utterly involving. And the characters are so vividly drawn by the filmmakers and cast that their mixture of hope and hopelessness really gets under our skin.
Audience Reviews for Linha de Passe
Engaging tale of 4 brothers' struggles to find themselves in the unforgiving maelstrom of Sao Paulo. The action sequences (especially the football) are shot with real dynamism and the ending is left bravely open but the themes are well worn.
