A man who's memorized his town'...展开s telephone directory tries his luck on a TV Show. But a small group of people who control the bettings in town try to get advantage of his simple-mindedness.
Very nice sample of what Brazil was like in the 50's. It's a nice, funny movie, and well produced, specially when compared to many films made in Brazil at that time. It's really a "time capsule" that allows the viewer to immerse himself in the "Golden Age" of Brazil, the 1950's. You can see the city of Sao Paulo at the height of it's economic development, but in a moment of time in which the violence and urban deterioration of the present didn't exist; you can see the early days of television, the TV sets that appear in the movie are of the "Invictus" brand, the first Brazilian TV brand, and the TV studio scenes were shot at the studio of "TV Tupi" , the first South American TV station; you can hear the way people talked and the slangs used in Brazil at the time; see the early days of Rock and Roll. To the nostalgic crowd, it's a movie that not only you must see, but also a movie that you must have in your collection.
