Insipid and Tasteless
23 April 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Brasília, the upper class Mauro (Othon Bastos) and Beatriz Vilhena (Cássia Kiss) and Beatriz's mother Irene (Nathália Timberg) press their teenager son and grandson Maurinho (André Gonçalves) to leave his girlfriend Ângela (Mylla Christie). Beatriz and Irene believe that Angela, who is a student of medicine but poor, wants to take economical advantage of their family.

When Mauro and Beatriz are found dead in their bedroom apparently after committing suicide, Federal Agent Lopes (Antônio Pompeo) and Police Detective Osmar (Anselmo Vasconcellos) are in charge of the investigation. Mauro would testify in a Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry and give an interview to the Spanish journalist Ines (Isabel Ampudia) about the death of Indians. When Lopes learns that Mauro had an argument with Maurinho and hit violently his face on the previous night, the youngster becomes the prime-suspect of his investigations. The stubborn agent does not give attention to Beatriz's brother Carlos Vilhena (Odilon Wagner) that uses his influence to "resolve" the murder case.

"Condenado à Liberdade" is an insipid and tasteless thriller, with a very poor screenplay that diverts the viewer with subplots that go nowhere. The behavior of the stubborn Federal Agent Lopes is absurd for a man in such position. The imprisonment of Maurinho without any evidence is silly and idiotic. The identity of the real killer is ridiculous. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Condenado à Liberdade" ("Condemned to Freedom")
