Review:

Bursting onto the scene in Fernando Meirelles’ Brazilian classic City of God, Alice Braga was the only member of that impressive cast to be propelled into the big time. Within four years, she was appearing in prominent roles in bid budget extravaganzas such as I Am Legend and looking every bit the movie star. With a solid skill base and the intuition of the top actors, the Sao Paulo native has managed to translate her craft across the American continental divide and find a willing audience. However, although her most impressive performances have come in low-key dramas such as David Mamet’s Redbelt, Hollywood seems to have pigeon-holed her into the supporting cast of sci-fi actioners which is not only a waste of her talent but a one-way ticket into eventual obscurity – even if she has demonstrated a surprising degree of depth in these limited roles. As such, her recent return to South American cinema has perhaps proven the wiser movie and with her name already established in the US, her acting will have a better chance of being noticed than her first time around.
