" One can only wonder why Torres accepted the role if she has so little identification with the character and shows so little interest in finding out about what made such a character tick.
In the production notes, Fernanda Torres is contemptuous of the character she plays. Perhaps there is no tradition of method acting in Brazil. For the remainder of the film, Toledo and Jonas are absorbed in the technical details of the kidnapping and we never discover who they really are or what they believe.

One can only hope that he never accepts an assignment to write a screenplay based on Tomas Borge's memoir. Gabeira develops a crush on Maria when he is first sworn into the terrorist cell.

It never would have occurred to Leopoldo Serran, the screenwriter, to fill in some background on such a character.
That Serran would even consider such an event as within the realm of possibility shows how detached he is from the reality of police repression.
It was nominated as Best Foreign Language Film at the 1998.
Ultimately "Four Days in September" is repression without violence.
