“Based on true events, u0026quot;O Bom Burguêsu0026quot; (u0026quot;The Good Borgeouiseu0026quot;) tells the story of Lucas, a bank teller who finances both sides of the socio-political-military conflictnbetween the left armed revolutionaries and the right-wing government commanded by the military. His duality is amazingly impressive and itu0026#39;s hard to tell if he really believenin two different causes antagonist to each other; all we know is that he knows the schemes of robbing from his own employee and he gets wealthier at each investment he makes.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThings start to go sour when his wife (Betty Faria) discovers the source of new income in the house; and when an associate (Nelson Dantas) throws him to another investmentnwhere heu0026#39;ll deal with a powerful businessman (Jardel Filho, on his final film role). And worst when Lucas discovers that his younger sister (Christiane Torloni) works for thenleft–wing group, robbing banks and financing the guerilla.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie combines elements of drama and suspense with a great balance and rhythm, never losing momentum even when the story seems to be taking strange directions. But all thentwists and turns make sense and add a great element of mysterty surrounding Lucas, the intrepid greedy man. Guess it all turns out that he wanted to score the deals and get thenmost money as possible for himself and his family, even though his wife does not care about all that thinking heu0026#39;s only putting himself in dangerous situations, going to riskynextremes for almost nothing. Whatu0026#39;ll make audiences think harder is all about his reasonings behind being a supplier from groups who fight each other with all the weapons theynhave, shaking the structures of a nation.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI couldnu0026#39;t find anything about the real life story but I can assure this was a recurring situation and many businessman financed and supported the regime and even the guerillasngiving high sums of money just to see their project of Brazil going right (or wrong too).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWilker once again gives a masterful performance, very believable and Lucas enters his gallery of amazing performances of all time. The rest of the cast is very good too.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was thrilled through the whole time just waiting for Lucas plans start to go wrong because those stories carry such weight, and when it did boy was I impressed. Lots of surprises onnthe way and youu0026#39;ll be thrilled too, I guarantee. 10/10.”
