If far from a master piece, a piece of history
9 May 2013 | by paulozacSee all my reviews

Somos tão Jovens is far from being a great movie in terms of script and direction, but it pictures well a good, unknown frame of one of the most important icons of Brazilian Rock music. Renato Russo gave voice to young people at the end of a dictatorial regime and also inspired following generations with his poesy in form of music. It was great to remember the genius and register the time line of his amazing music repertoire. An evident strength of the movie is the soundtrack, which spreads well the Legiao Urbana songs throughout the whole film, making you feel in actual concerts. The movie does make a good job in terms of entertainment and I strongly recommend Legiao Urbana fans to watch it. It's a nice, nostalgic time travel.
