Plot less self-indulgent crap
17 November 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rogério Sganzerla made some good films, like 'O Bandido da Luz Vermelha' and 'A Mulher de Todos'. 'Abismu', however, is pure dreck. It is simply a collage featuring some bizarre characters -- a mad scientist played by José Mojica Marins (of Coffin Joe fame), a hit-man played by Wilson Grey, a psychic played by Jorge Loredo (famous for the TV character 'Zé Bonitinho'), and others; they talk, they ride in cars, they speak in monologues. I must confess that Jorge Loredo's lines are absolutely hilarious -- if you dig nonsense, that is. Unless you think it's worth going through this otherwise dreary film just to hear his outlandish utterances, keep your distance from this film. As a final note, let me stress that there is no plot in this film. Forget about the plots you see at some websites -- there is nothing happening in the film that remotely resembles a story.
