Belarmino the boxer, the wretch
16 July 2005 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

A biographic movie in a documentary style portraying the life of Belarmino Fragoso a Portuguese boxing champion of the fifties and sixties of last century with he himself doing his own character. It develops itself in an interview with the protagonist intersected by scenes of his present (at the date of the movie) and past life. He talks about himself in the patois of the uneducated lisboners trying to explain how the box business was at the time an industry of exploitation of poor illiterate people who had nothing else to sell than his physical brute force. However he talks with self-satisfaction and belief in his own abilities to face life despite the fact that he is already practically finished as boxer and doesn't have any aptitude to do anything else. He makes a very interesting character and the movie is solidly directed.
