"Saw this picture today and am very pleased the way Carlos Reichenbach portraits group of female workers in an industrial Sao Paulo neighborhood, their families, working habits, free time and loves. Very powerful and striking story on some intolerance you can found in almost every big industrial city in the world. Episode on fascist behaviour against foreigners from other provinces is bold and powerful. Great cinematography, full of ideas,great acting. The tenderness of the director towards his characters almost equals Ken Loach's views, but in a more poignant, radical and explosive way." - eliepoliti IMDB
"This 2003 Brazilian melodrama in more mainstream than the others I´ve seen by director Carlos Reichenbach (Suburban Angels, Buccaneer Soul and Two Streams), but is visual flair is still very much in evidence." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, CHICAGO READER
