Movie Reviews

"A comprehensive analysis of the carnaval participants is presented as a prelude to the parade. In doing so, one has a better understanding of the makeup of each group exhibiting. The parade itself was very well depicted with all its enthusiasum and glory. I have witnessed the parade in person and this DVD very vividly recreated the color, pulse, and excitement of having been there. I recommend it to anyone wanting to witness people thoroughly enjoying their participation in the annual event
preceeding Lent."

"Although this DVD is from the 80s, it still captures the beauty of Rio's Carnaval. We attended in 2007 and the costumes are skimpier but the floats, costumes and music are as beautiful as ever. I wish GLOBO (TV Station) would ship DVDs more often. I borrowed a 2 disc set that came from Brazil and it was on the long side. This gives just enough viewing time without getting laborious."

"The music is, of course, great.
The commentary is informative and thankfully very brief.
However, the carnival is from 1986 and the video quality is very bad.
PS. Other than that, I agree with the "wood Carver's" comments."
