A Portuguese film that touch at every country in the world
«Jaime» is a great Portuguese movie. This kind of movies is very rare to found, especially in Portugal, where the cinema industry is very small and just few films are good. «Jaime» is a story about a boy that works to have money for his dreams and to help his divorced parents. The script is very good, and most important, REALISTIC - another thing that is very rare to found in Portuguese films - and we have very good interpretations of the cast and especially from Saul (Jaime in the movie), a brilliant kid that unfortunately didn't continue acting after «Jaime». The soundtrack is nice and the direction too. So... why don't you watch this movie?
