I rated this superb video five stars even though it only focused on the average people of Brazil through the lives of 7 people, most of them young: an old guy running his boat far up the Amazon tributaries to deliver supplies and avoid pirates; a young girl seeking to escape humdrum life as a maid through soccer; a young lady who has become a commercial helicopter pilot in Sao Paulo; a young government worker lady who temporarily escapes business life by dancing the samba in the Carnival parade in Rio in an elaborate costume (but almost unnoticed among the thousands of dancers); a young girl in a small town preparing a carpet of colored sawdust for the Easter religious parade with her as an angel; a young cowboy who seeks glory in the rodeo; and the only dismal story of a teen boy coping with the dangerous life in a slum area of Salvador. The visuals include many spectacular airborne views of Brazil. The caveat is that it does not show much of the nature life or natural wonders – the focus is on people. It achieves this goal by tastefully showing much of the spectacle of Carnival, the cities and the country through the lens of lower-class people trying to eke out a living. But it dramatically shows the infectious joy of life that even poor Brazilians have that we should emulate in our affluent country, where many are clinically depressed.
