Awful: Maybe the Worst Brazilian Movie I Have Ever Seen
18 June 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Durval (Ary França) is a clumsy man of forty and something years, who lives in the past. He has a small business of used LP vinyl records and lives with his mother in the back of the store. She is a controller and is not a normal person, having sclerosis or some sort of mind disorder. Their lives change with the arrival of the maiden Célia (Letícia Sabatella) and her daughter Kiki (Isabela Guasco), when a great secret is disclosed.

Wow, maybe this is the worst Brazilian movie I have ever seen! I do not know whether the intention of the director-writer Anna Muylaert was to present a non-sense dark comedy, but indeed this film is very bad. The characters are not charismatic, the actors, actresses and locations are very ugly, their accent from São Paulo hurts the ears, the story is ridiculous and nothing works in this movie. Only the long original introduction of more than four minutes without cut is worthwhile. I do not understand how this movie was awarded in 2002 Gramado Festival with many prizes. My vote is two.
