MOVIES: BESOURO -- upcoming Capoeira movie

My thanks to my friend P. for the heads-up on this!

From the IMDB:

The plot: Based on the life of a legendary capoeira fighter from Bahia, "Besouro" spins a fantastic tale of a young Brazilian man of African descent in search of his mission.

Release date: 30 October 2009 (Brazil)

Sounds like what ONG BAK did for the Thai arts, what MERANTAU looks to do for the Indonesian arts, BESOURO may be poised to do for Capoeira.
