Rasganço is a movie that is a unique vision of a subject, (the very traditional and elitist world of Coimbra´s University), that I had never seen portrayed in a movie. By unique I mean that it is a movie which doesn't glue itself to any specific genre or tries to blend some of them.
The director just tries to tell the story with her own ideas and therefore with honesty, a major quality in this movie and also in movies in general, especially when the Hollywood industry just produces variations on a handful of subjects and genres, (95% of the cases anyway).
In these conditions it's harder to make a 100% percent effective movie and in this case the picture is not totally accomplished. The fact that it portrays a reality which I am familiarized with was also interesting to me.
I just hope that Portuguese cinema starts making more movies such as this one so that people in general demonstrates more interest in it.
