Very Boring Surrealistic Dark Comedy
2 November 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After visiting his doctor, Mr. Baum is advised that he has an aggressive cancer tumor and only ninety-two minutes of life. He tries to contact his wife, partner, mother, friends and daughter, but none of them has much time to spend with him. He finally dies on his bed. I watched 'The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum' with the expectation to see a great movie. The storyline is wonderful: 'What would you do if you know that you have just 92 minutes of life?' Further, this film was released by the Brazilian distributor 'Cult Filmes', specialized in independent movies, and usually their titles are excellent. However, I found a very boring surrealistic dark comedy, indeed an pretentious intellectual crap. The story goes nowhere. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): 'Os 92 Minutos do Sr. Baum' ('The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum')
