One of the Best Portuguese comedies
16 September 1999 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

I recognize this is an old movie. It has more than 50 years. It's in Portuguese, and that can be an obstacle, but this is a GREAT, GREAT comedy. António Silva at his best. The most surprising is that this excellent comedy was made during a dictatorship, and that is unusual. If you understand Portuguese, SEE this movie. If you don't, than go and learn.
