Estou super torcendo pra este filme vencer! Loved the interview with Brian Lehrer - he is so smart and interviews so well. One question about the Portuguese: when the interviewer says " po cara," where does the po come from? I know it's like gee in English, but I can only guess it's a respectable way to say p*rra, but maybe my mind's in the gutter....

Also, who has more star quality, Tião or Cheng Cheng in Please Vote for Me?

Rio Gringa

Hey Dennis,

That is my understanding of the expression, but I'm not 100% certain if it in fact comes from p*rra. I think it does.

I don't know - they're both so fascinating! PS, I read this book after I saw the Chinese movie and everything made a lot more sense: http://www.amazon.com/Lost-Planet-China-Understand-Comfortable/dp/076792200X


I have been looking for this film in the Uk but can't find it. Does anyone know if it has another title? Our thoughts go out to those workers who have lost their jobs. I hope that they get some kind ofn compensation.
