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.
It is as authentic as Salles and Thomas can make it even if it sometimes seems that, apart from the football angle, we have seen it all before. But if you haven't, then it's a real eye-opener.
Audience Reviews for Linha de Passe
My building was one of the sets... a typical middle class building in SP. The director is the great Walter Salles (with Daniela Thomas). The first movie (for me) with 5 protagonists. Worth watching if you appreciate Brazilian movie... or if you wanna know about Brazil.
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.
