“The objective of telling this story is to be able to bring debate about what happened in that crime, to understand that it is not an isolated case and how we can prevent these mistakes from being repeated in society. Most people even understand the The noise that exists on the internet comes from this fear of glamorizing the protagonist.”he argued.
The actor believes that many people still believe in the possibility of Suzane being placed as a victim or heroine of the story, but he guarantees that the film does not take great care in focusing on the details of the crime.
“There is a fear that Suzane, in some way, will be treated as a heroine and anyone who watches any minute of the film will understand that this does not happen. We show the reality, on the contrary, there is no type of aggrandizement of the act”he declares.
