    2010. Brazil. Directed by Toniko Melo. With Wagner Moura, Arieta Corrêa, Gisele Fróes. A spinner of tall tales turns into a reluctant con man in this energetic tale based on the real life story of the bluffer Marcelo da Rocha. As a child, Marcelo’s one ambition was to fly planes; as an adult, our anti-hero stumbles upon his dream when he becomes a pilot for a drug trafficking enterprise. Dangerous escapades, money, and high-powered friends follow; soon he’s being taken for the brother of the president of Gol Airlines, and that’s only the beginning.... The tone is breezy and the situations funny, rendering the film as seductive as its main character. VIPs garnered all the main prizes at the 2010 Rio Film Festival. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 96 min.
