  • Great film! It’s filled with so many important questions and themes to think about during and after watching the movie. In particular, I found myself reflecting a lot on how difficult the decision must be for a rural family to uproot themselves and move to a city, as well as the tough decision for a family to let their sons go off to perform around the country without knowing if they’ll ever see each other again.

    To top it off, the boys do have phenomenal voices, and watching them play on the accordion was fun, too!

    • This was an excellent film in my opinion. My favorite film this term so far. The beginning was very touching, especially when the boys were just beginning to sing. Watching them grow as musicians was very nice and I was sad when the car accident occurred. I would recommend this film to everyone.

  • A film about having strong convictions and trusting one’s instinct – great! Really enjoyed it. Interesting view of dictatorship era as well, without being a film “about” dictatorship.

  • One of the better Portuguese films I’ve watched. A heartwarming story about going from rags to riches. I strongly recommend watching it!
