Movie: The year my parents went on vacation
The credibility of the main character is the main reason this movie succeeds. Mauro's parents leave for "vacation" (to get out of reach of the dictatorship's men) and Mauro is left almost alone to explore the world - in the form of Sao Paolo. Everything happens in the same summer that the World Cup goes on in Mexico, with great chances for Brazil (with Pele).
It's a warm and touching story, with big and small events in a nice mix. Well worth seeing!
(This was the first film I saw at this year's Films from the south festival.
