Storyline

Francisco, behave! I Know it's your birthday, you are thirty now, it's carnival, you've dressed as a cowboy for the school party and you are surrounded by kids you hate. But that's no reason to be so annoying... Francisco, repeat after me: "Up to your 30's you have the face God has given you. After that, you get the face you deserve". Written by O Som e a Fúria

Excellent!!! 10/10!!! One of the best Portuguese films of all time!!!
13 April 2005 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

The Greatest Portuguese Movie of the 21st century and one of the best in Europe at the time. Great sense of humor, incredible sets, amazing actors and the ghost of childhood always floating above our heads. The rhythm of the film is very good and we never close our eyes, because the beauty of it, doesn't let us. Great cinematography. Besides we follow the adventures of these seven "boys" with great joy and tenderness and never do we yawn.Great, great film. If this is the future of Portuguese cinema, i wanna take part on it because it is brilliant. P.s: young Portuguese directors: do not give up!!! go see this film and see why you shouldn't quit...
