Another Excellent Movie of Jorge Furtado
12 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Duca (Darlan Cunha) is a smart teenager that lives in Porto Alegre with his father Laerte (Airton Graça) and his mother Cléia (Dira Paes). His best friends are the also teenagers Isa (Sophia Reis), for whom he has a crush, and Kid (Renan Augusto), for whom Isa has a crush. One night, his uncle Éder (Lázaro Ramos) visits his family and informs that he has just killed the former husband of his girlfriend Soraia (Deborah Secco). Duca finds mistakes in the story told by his uncle, and decides to investigate the tragic event.

Jorge Furtado is certainly one of the best contemporary Brazilian directors and screenplay writers. He is very sensitive to the Brazilian social problems, using many of ours daily and common situations in his well-paced and ironical movies. "Meu Tio Matou Um Cara" is a very funny story, with many jokes. For example, he criticizes the exaggerated concern with racism in Brazilian society in the beginning of the movie; the piracy of CDs, but also the prices of the original CDs - the youngsters prefer to buy four pirates CDs instead of only one original CD, which is an incorrect reality that does exist; he jokes with the efficiency of our police, since a smart teenager is capable to easily resolve a crime and disclose the truth. The cast is wonderful, having very natural performances. For those viewers not familiarized with Jorge Furtado, I highly recommend his delightful romantic-comedy "Houve Uma Vez Dois Verões" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0322629/usercomments-2) and mainly his masterpiece, his dramatic romantic-comedy "O Homem Que Copiava" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367859/usercomments-11). I do not know whether there is international distribution of these excellent movies. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Meu Tio Matou Um Cara" ("My Uncle Killed a Guy")
