Joao Cesar Monteiro : Master of absurdity tackling religion single handedly.
18 July 2007 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Joao Cesar Monteiro is no more with us.But for me he is the greatest filmmaker of all times.This film proves his talent in making absolutist comical dramas of hidden motives.He is a great actor too and has appeared in his own films on various occasions.It appears that the basic issue of this film is to ascertain whether a human being can be god or not.Everybody knows that it is difficult to be a god.Since this narrative idea is laden with umpteen elements of zany absurdity,a lot of patience is required to watch carefully the events unfold. Joao Cesar Monteiro has tackled Christian religion too in this film.The result of this conflict is delightful.There is a good cinematographic representation of old versus new too.This makes us aware of the fact that old people are full of wisdom unlike their young counterparts. This film like its filmmaker has kept a very low profile.This is the reason why it is not for people asking more and more action, happening and events.
