Geraldo Del Rey,
Cronicamente Inviável is not a movie for export, is a self evaluation meaning shake the stupidity out of the Brazilian bourgeois. Shows decadence, intolerance, ignorance, violence, perversion and other human degenerations merciless, raw and ugly.
I don't know if it was purposely such bad photography, edition and light. Besides the bad performance of the actors the movie does not show anything new, the language is obvious.
Even good actors like Dantas, are bad directed and inefficient. Even though if you like Brazilian Movies, is worth seeing because it contains deep social reflections about Brazilian society. The plot is good but the lack of a good Art Director with a global vision decreases the real value of the movie.
