Underestimated educational movie
26 November 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

In fact, Xuxa ain't a great movie-maker, but in "Super Xuxa Contra o Baixo Astral" she gave her best and the result is a healthy and entertaining movie, that appeals most ranges of public. Actually, this film is the result of an exhaustive search for the ideal aesthetics for a family movie, developed by the main director, David Sonnenschein. In the character "Baixo Astral", most of the contemporary neo-romantic antagonism is mimethized such as the dilemma of the self affirmation against the behavior that is asked for it, which may serve as influence in the development of the symbolic and yet referential psique of the young spectators. Although notoriously influenced by Deleuze's ontology, Sonnenschein was able to, with strategic adaptations, give us the concept of the true freedom. There are a lot of plot issues, and a few situations that don't fit the global proposition. The editing also seems to be made in such a rush that in certain moments we cannot follow the illogic flow of the movie. But, despite the cliché problematic, "Super Xuxa Contra o Baixo Astral" is a good movie, with a positive message and a bright cast. The highlights are on Guilherme Karan, a visionary entertainer, with lots of humanity and a remarkable body expression. Finally, the last scene, along with the unforgettable musical performances and the growth of the fantasy characters (led by Henriqueta Brieba) in the plot represent the true contemporary interpretation of childhood, and must be remembered after all. If an unusual link is possible, this whole emblematic proposition should represent to the Brazilian cinema what the mythological character conception of István Szabó once was for the east-European avant-gardes.
