Director: Claudio Torres
Cast: Pedro Cardoso, Miguel Falabella, Fernanda Montenegro, Fernando Torres, Jose wilker

The official site (with trailer) is

It is basically a film about the poor versus the rich ... about greed and corruption ... A reporter whose father was cheated of their housing was tasked to interview the culprit who happened to be his childhood friend ... how would things go as some "twists" were introduced ...

What is commendable ...
-- The film is rather different from a typical Hollywood film despite the fact that it is rather "commercial" ...
-- It is a dark comedy ...
-- It has a nice "moral" lesson ...
-- Technically, it does have some nice cinematography, visuals, and "special effects" ...
-- Interesting/weird combination of music/soundtrack ...

What may be problematic ...
-- While the beginning is grounded in realism, the ending took a religious slant. While some audience will not mind, some might find it less credible ... some might also be offended religiously by what is depicted ...

Conclusion:
Watch it and tell me what you think ...
