The film features innovations that were not common in Brazilian films, including explosions, animations, elaborate special effects and pop culture references.[2] It was released in Brazil on January 20, 2012.[3]


Edgar is a young upper-middle class man, close to completing 30 years old, he lives a full life crisis and is in a position common to the vast majority of Brazilians. On the one hand the power, represented by a corrupt state, abusive and absent in their taxes before their obligations. On the other, crime increasingly organized violence became a constant in the lives of citizens in large cities. Edgar responds to all this as a modern vigilante. With the help of ingredients such as technology, counter-information and manipulation, Edgar concocts a brilliant plan, using the greed of their opponents as the reason for its destruction. As the plot unfolds, we know more about the dark past of each character as Edgar fit the pieces together in an intriguing puzzle that makes up the film's plot.[3]

American remake[edit]

Tango Pictures bought the rights to remake this film with a title Two Rabbits. The film will be the second project for the development of new production, directed by Andrew Lazar, Christina Lurie and Steven Shainberg. Afonso Poyart says it should take the executive production, but not the direction. Poyart said, "The idea is to make another movie. At the moment, the Tango is hiring writers that will give a new treatment history and acclimation to the American public". The budget of the film should cost between $ 10 million and 12 million.[4]
