A must-see for fans of the too-short-lived Brazilian art movement. Great performance footage of Veloso, Gil, Os Mutantes--and a spectacular explanatory explosion by Tom Ze.

Interesting documentary on the Brazilian tropicalia movement in music (and other arts) a combination of folk art and psychedelia that arose in the 60s.

In 1967 the art in Brazil ceased to be an bourgeois' instrument of intellectual domain to assume a form of sensory manifestation. It was the Tropicalista movement happening. And this documentary is not a defining exercise, but an effervescence of rare images, sounds, music and testimonies that seek to make the viewer feel what was (or is) the Tropicalismo. And so is victorious. With a research impeccable, they bring to the screen materials previously unknown, unpublished. A must see movie for anyone who call himself Brazilian.
