'Marigella' is already the most watched Brazilian movie of 2021 - and it's well deserved

Yes, you should tell the story. The movie finally chapterega to Brazilian screens.

After successful screenings at international film festivals, secret links and censorship by ANCINE, which delayed its release in these parts, the film appeared on the big screen.

The production directed by Wagner Moura and brilliantly represented by Seu Jorge has, among many, the merit of illuminating the path and legacy of a revolutionary leader in the dark years after the 1964 coup d’état in Brazilian soil.

Yes, it is necessary to re-emphasize that during this period, whenever necessary, families were destroyed, civil rights exhausted, the press was muzzled, and electric shocks and pau-de-arara were common forms of torture.

Yes, we are still hungry, and business relationships and the accumulation of wealth have not changed much since the 1960s until now. But Marigella was a great man of his time. Same time as Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.

The film is full of cliched words and phrases from the protagonist, such as “we don’t have time to be afraid.” The delegate Lúcio (Bruno Gagliasso) is inspired by the psychopath Sérgio Paranhos Fleury.

It is astonishing to note that Brazil has proponents of this kind of behavior and genocidal policies. The people led by Bolsonaro, associated with the most backward and backward groups, and who embody these sewers that insist on flooding into our lives.

The “good citizens,” who took to the streets last September 7, demanding the return of the AI-5 and the dissolution of the Federal Supreme Court, want exactly this fascist model.

Once again appeared the rancidity of a large class of this bad backward society and the society of slaves, adding to an immeasurable ignorance, was immersed in the deepest tubes of our social network.

It should be clarified that what the movie was showing was true. It’s not a dystopian Netflix fantasy.

Stepping into a crowded cinema again is a sign that there is still room to write the potential history of Brazil.

The period and artistic direction are very well re-enacted, as is the fashion. There is a “global standard” that bothers me, but that’s a topic for another review.

Mora made his senior debut with a very powerful movie.

He knew how to drive safely and was, at times, crying an audience longing for heroes and hope. At the end of the show, as the credits soared, the audience clapped their hands and shouted “Fora Bolsonaro.”

History is cyclical. will pass. Long live Mariela.
