The biggest bank robbery, now on screen

220px-Assalto_ao_Banco_CentralThe biggest bank robbery ever promoted in the country happened in 2005, when 164 million reais (80 million dollars) were stolen from the Central Bank safe in the city of Fortaleza. Some members of the gang that built a 78 meter (256 feet) tunnel to reach the safe were caught – but they never confessed. Now the story is (freely) portraied in “Assalto ao Banco Central”, a very tense film by Marcos Paulo, a successful soap opera director at TV Globo. The huge cast includes Milhem Cortaz, Eriberto Leão, Lima Duarte, Giulia Gam, Gero Camilo, Cassio Gabus Mendes, Tonico Pereira, Milton Gonçalves and Antonio Abujamra. The film will be released in Brazil on July 22, but you can check here the screen trailer:
