A shame to the memory of the play
15 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of movies and therefore I am quite sad in saying that IRMA VAP - O Retorno is the worst movie I have ever seen. The storyline has nothing to do with the play itself: rather, it is about a bunch of actors trying to put the play on the stage back again.

Some movies fail because the directors follow a vision that is not shared by the audience. IRMA VAP only vision, it seems to me, was to take money from the sponsors of the movie in exchange of nothing. Go see Friday the 13th, it certainly has a more deep storyline.

Avoid this movie at all costs - the original IRMA VAP play was excellent and there is no need to spoil good memories with this. The reaction of the audience at the small theater where I saw it in lebolon varied from perplexity, sleepness and anger. The only happiness I saw was when people thanked the director for limiting the suffering to 80 minutes.
