A nice amateur work of teen comedy
16 February 2002 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

There was a large expectation for me to see this film, partially because I talked to the makers through online means for over a year back, but also for the plot had always been a matter of interest. When I finally got it, at the University festival, it didn't disappoint me at all. Although it's an amateur work, evidently, made by students in northeastern Brazil, it is a competent piece of cheap cinema, composed by a good idea and a dedicated crew.

Though a limited audience can understand it (i.e., only regional spectators under 25) and even a fewer might like it, there's an universal storyline: shy guy looks for a girl. This would be the very same plot as thousands of other teen movies, but here we get a distinguishing point: he doesn't make it. Well, at least that's what you'll think to the very final frame.

There are flaws, indeed. The performance of Perazzo is not anything we could call "a promising acting" but nevertheless he does his job. Personally, I'd say he's better writing than performing. Perhaps the dialogues lack some more intelligent humor, the camera is not part of the storytelling, and the sound is terrible (I'd blame their accents too), and any of these will not bother you if you know what the film was made for.

Anyway, there is no presumption at all in "As Aventuras de Lucrécio no Mundo da Paquera", but to have the audience have fun for a few minutes. And this far it surely gets.
