There's a criminal at the University...
22 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's not the first time I watch RASGANÇO, I did already watch it when it was released here in Portugal in 2001. To be honest I did enjoy it better the first time I saw it, but it doesn't mean I didn't like it this time though. What I noticed now is that the acting could have been better and the pace is too slow. Technical details that I observe and I give some importance now and I didn't at that time... However, the plot's topic and the movie's concept still good to me.

The plot is about a man that arrives in Coimbra's University when the students are celebrating an academic ritual called "Rasganço". Quickly he starts making friends (female friends!) and starts flirting with three of them: ANA RITA, a student, MARIA DOS ANJOS, an employee of the "Republica" (a house for students) where he's hosted and DRA. ZITA. While he's flirting these women, other female students start appearing violated and with words carved (with a knife) in their chest... However, since the beginning we know who the criminal is; the plot never hides it...

So, the plot is never mysterious and never tries to hide from the viewer who the criminal is. It has another point. Rather than a story of crime I think the main idea of this film is to pass a social message to the viewer. In fact, in my perspective, it hides a critic to the University and to some rules of it.

I score it 7/10. The production is not good, but I liked the plot and the movie's message.
