Manda Bala

Manda Bala

This film is a cinematic bullet into the cerebral cortex, a documentary that unflinchingly exploring the cycles of violence that plague Brazil's upper and lower economic classes in fits of rampant corruption and violent kidnappings. The film chronicles a frog farm connected to a corrupt politician and one of the most powerful men in Brazil; a kidnapping victim who had both her ears cut off before she was released to her parents; a wealthy plastic surgeon who pioneered the procedure used to reconstruct the ears of kidnapping victims; and a kidnapper who has watched many like him escape the poorest parts of Brazil for the wealthier Sao Paolo, where they terrorize the upper class with kidnappings, theft and murder. 'Manda Bala' explores the various cottage industries cropping up in response to the violence and links these stories to weave a compelling narrative about what happens in a country where the rich and powerful steal from the poor, and in turn some of the poor terrorize the rich.

Only instead of a Philly fighter, the main character is a boxer reincarnated as a Giant Squid. To avenge his death he must train and re-enter the ring to face his nemesis. Crazy as it sounds... this movie has a cult following in my 'hood since several neighbors have borrowed the dvd.

No, it wasn't the most clever comedy I'd ever seen. Nowhere close actually. It was completely predictable, but lighthearted enough to simply enjoy. Besides, It stars Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear, I don't know why I ever had any doubts.
