    Loving that song in the credits. Does anyone who reads Portuguese know whether the musician is listed in the credits?

    • J. J. Johnny

      Hi, Ignoranimus. I can read in portuguese and this song you talked about is uncredited.

  • David Loomis

    Yeah, needed some massive editing. As for the music, they credit Helio Ziskind and Ivan Rocha. Google turned up a little, but not much.

  • Guy Charnaux

    Oh cool! I did some of the animation for this movie :D

    The actress lip biting is kind of disturbing. It points out a whole new perspective on storytelling. Disturbing.
