"30.5. - TV Rio de Janeiro esitettiin ihanan eksoottisena kaupunkina, huikeat maisemakuvat hakee vertaistaan ja karnevaalien fiilis oli mukavan rento, mutta tarinapuoli vain jäi niin laihaksi että tää ois varmaan toiminu paremmin jonain karnivaalidokkarina. Viimeinen kuva lapsista tanssimassa kitaran tahtiin jäi kyllä mieleen."

Watched in 2009 (in Finnish) (345 movies items)

"Elokuva on teknillisesti keskinkertainen, eikä sambarytmeihin ole saatu tarpeeksi intohimoa. Viimeinen näytös on kuitenkin todella nautittavaa kun sambakarnevaaliraisuilu on ohi ja seurataan kadonneen rakkaan etsintää. Ja lopetus, missä lapset nostattavat aurinkoa ylös kitaraa soittamalla ja tanssimalla, on mainio. Pitäisi varmaan tuntea alkuperäinen tarina paremmin, jotta tästä saisi enemmän irti."
