When we are talking about some book or movie it's very common to see the following statements:
- "Esse filme é baseado em fatos reais.";
- "O livro foi feito com base em fatos verídicos.";
My question is: Is it redundant?
I already saw some arguments saying that a "fato"(fact) is always real, but I think that we can use "fato fictício" or something, so "fatos reais" is not redundant to me.
Am I wrong?
