Powerful, deep and unquestionably valuable, Bicho de Sete Cabecas is nothing short of a latin american classic.

Both a showcase of Rodrigo Santoro's talent and an exposé of the horrible conditions of mental institutions in Brazil (based on a real life story), this is an tragic and unsettling drama that looks quite realistic with its use of handheld camera and blueish cinematography.

Somehow just another coming of age story. Latin Cinema's usual crudeness. A few catchy visual frames though.

If you want to watch something on the topic go for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" or "Girl, Interrupted" rather and not necessarily for this title. It's disturbing though if that's what psychiatric treatment in Brazil looks like. Interesting to see Santoro in something from before his Hollywood period.

A great illustration of the horrible life that represents psychatric hospitals. Acting was perfect to really show that even if we're not mad we become it by going there.

I'm surprised to see this film isn't more known. It's pretty good, with some nice acting by Rodrigo Santoro. Oh, and it's a real story.

I am guessing this is one of those movies where the book was probably better. Still a solid Brazilian film though.

único filme brasileiro que considero bom, pois walter salles e meirelles são praticamente estrangeiros....já o resto é muito chupa-américa.

retrata as falhas no sistema de saúde publica, a desestrutura de uma família que parece estruturada, a desinformação, falta de diálogo, o preconceito, desqualificação dos profissionais na saúde mental. Filme de cenas fortes, retratando fielmente a realidade de muito e a vida que os usuários da saúde mental estão condenados a ter.

esta película de alguna forma grafica lo que muchos pasan penosamente al entregarse hacia algo desconocido para el común de los padres de latinoamérica.

Todos os filmes que fazem denúncia social do Brasil ficam incrívelmente bons.
Acho que é um dos momentos que os brasileiros tem coragem de mostrar o lado podre do Sistema.

Rodrigo Santoro trabalhou muito bem, como pseudo drogado em uma clínica.

Top-notch Brazilian filmmaking. Rodrigo Santoro proves himself as more than just a pretty face.

Nos muestra un mundo infernal...Una cura que para muchos debe ser impuesta a aquellos que han tomado "el camino equivocado"...

Good Movie. I wouldn't have seen it, but since I've been getting into quality cinema, I did. Do not regret it. Great perfomances and really leaves you thinking.
