Linha de Passe : My personal impressions

Linha de Passe, a film directed by Walter Salles and Daniela Thomas

Linha de Passe is a movie that shows the huge, depressing, and poisoning reality that is the lives of the majority of Brazilians, and the people of so many other third world countries. A reality where to keep one’s integrity is not only a difficult task… it is in fact an almost impossible one. It’s about this mother (Sandra Carveloni, Best actress in the 61th Cannes Festival 2008 – her first work in cinema) who struggles to keep her kids as a family within this unfair reality.
