It's not a masterpiece... However, it's a good Portuguese film
I saw this movie on TV a few months ago, and I like it. It's not a great movie that change history, but it has some of the Portuguese soul in the years of the dictatorship. It is based on José Cardoso Pires book, an experimental detective story that is set on the sixties. The highlight of themovie is Raul Solnado, here in his best drama performance. José Cardoso Pires didn't want Solnado to the main role (inspector Elias Santana), but when he saw the movie, he changed his idea. Many people thought he was just a comedian, until this movie came out. It's a good adaptation of the novel (and I admit, I read the book and I think that the film is more enjoyable than the book, because this author is good, but not very enjoyable to read). Watch it.
