Interesting topic, a little slow. The child actors were great in this movie.

"Ano em que meus pais saíram de férias" or "The Year my Parents went on Vacation" is a Portuguese gem. Set in 1970 when Brazil was suffering under its worst dictatorship, the film follows a boy whose mind is on The World Cup Champions: Brazil. Is he oblivious to the political unrest or is soccer just a mask to spare him from the harsh truth?
