10 – Rio
Carlos Saldanha, after the success of Ice Age, won as a gift from Fox studios the right to choose the film he wanted to shoot.
So he created Rio, a tribute to its origins.
Unlike being limited to a Brazilian stereotype, Rio presents the best of the Marvelous City.
The carioca knows well but many do not imagine, even Brazilians.
It is a great trip through the sights of the city, the cable car of Santa Teresa, the beach, the Sambadrome, the Pedra da Gávea.
But it also shows the reality of the favelas and the kindness and empathy of the inhabitants, through the personality of the characters.
Rio, according to Saldanha, was not meant to be box office champion, but still won sequence.
In Rio 2, macaws win Brazil, a new trip is provided and we discover new real scenarios, such as the Buraco das Araras in the Pantanal.
