Tragically Beautiful
28 November 2002 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

The first film directed by the somewhat famous Italian actor Michele Placido is an incredible study of human nature, starting when Kwaku, a medicine student travels to his motherland in search for his brother known as Pummaro (in English, Tomato) who works in extreme conditions in order to get enough money to pay his brother's studies.

The cast is very good and so is Placido's direction, who can actually prove that he is not only a great actor, but also an impressive director. The story runs efficiently, turning this simple and emotive story in a small masterpiece of his genre.

My personal rating: ***1/2 out of ****
