A docudrama about the economic and social disparity between Brazil's upper and lower classes, Chronically Unfeasible was filmed over a five-year period as a fictionalized documentary. Director Sergio Bianchi trains his camera on ineffective union organizers, street children who fight over their toys, police engaging in random acts of brutality, and a black maid who is humiliated by the bourgeois family whom she has known almost all her life. Central to the film are scenes that take place at a restaurant, where a snotty middle-class couple picks at their food, a manager tries to make something of her life, and a young waiter is fired for sleeping with his boss. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide

This film will test your faith in God and humanity. If Brazil exists for a reason, perhaps it has something to do with the limits of human folly. The movie is difficult to watch and has many disturbing scenes of human degradation. For example, the organ harvesting business, black market adoptions, male prostitution, rain forest destruction, exploitation of cheap labor, street orphans, and more. My take on it is that in spite of this horror, God intends for us to live happy purposeful lives, to be dignified within the limits of our circumstances, and to shun or avoid situations as depicted in this pseudo documentary in our own society. If you can't make that leap of faith then I suggest you avoid viewing this film.
