__senior citizen killer__
30 December 2004 | by (Ankara,Turkey) – See all my reviews

I watched Justino 3 hours ago and I very very enjoyed it. the film is absolutely a dark comedy( the best I ever seen for months) and is about an old man named Justino retired from a bull-ring living with his son and his daughter-in-law.

After retirement he has difficulties to adopt to his new life and he starts to kill ones that he cannot tolerate with his bull-dagger which is a retirement present. this is the fun of movie. he kills his son, daughter-in-law, an old woman in need of help to survive from couples of guttersnipes and so .I laughed a lot every killing scene because perhaps he is the nicest and the most cold-blooded killer ever seen. the most charming part of the movie is the final. Nearly in every film we see the killer is punished or killed but in Justino we do not see that. Despite his killings, he achieves to survive ridiculously at the end of the movie and ,to me,this is really the happy-ending.
