Bitter yet Funny...
16 July 1999 | by (Belzonte, Minas Gerais Uai, Brasil) – See all my reviews

Shot with really short budget, this can surely be called a classic of Brazilian cinema. 'Festa' means 'party', and the action lasts only one night. Two snooker players and a musician are hired to amuse the guests but they themselves cannot get much fun from the situation... I guess the plot is kind of universal, thus the movie should be exhibited in other countries. Stuart's and Abujamra's acting were gorgeous.
