Makes me ashamed of being Portuguese
6 June 2003 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Portuguese cinema suffers from two things:

1 Either it's trying to compete with Holywood standards, or

2 It tries to be so artistic/crafty/beautiful/intellectual/whatever pseudothing you can insert here that only a handful of other intellectuals understand... or at least pretend.

This movie is downright trash, it doesn't show an image for the duration of the whole movie, and the script is laughable.

And Portuguese wonder why we still haven't got a nomination for the Oscars.

I'm sure the director/writer didn't bother with what he did... or didn't do, since he was financed by the government - well, with so many deficiencies here, i'm ashamed money was spent on this pseudoartistic piece of trash.
