O King of Chaos
25 May 2006 | by (Espinho,Portugal) – See all my reviews

"Jaime" is a soap opera, not the kind of soap opera where nobody works and everybody gets married in beautiful seaside resorts but the kind where tragedies keep on piling until the characters are out of breathing room in their lives for anything besides grievance.

"Jaime" follows the grown up child of the film's title in his quest to improve his life while at the same time reuniting his parents, for this he enters a dodgy underworld of child labor and slight misdemeanours where besides finding some pay he loses what little innocence he still retained.

Worthwhile even if a little heavy on the sentimental side
