Werewolf, Mermaid and a Boring Story
19 February 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, Coronel Ponciano de Azeredo Furtado (Diogo Vilela) inherits the farm Sobradinho in the country, many possessions and the title of "colonel" of his grandfather. His close friend Pernambuco Nogueira (Selton Mello), son of one of the employees of the farm and with whom Ponciano was raised together since they were born, gets nothing in the will. Ponciano has a crush on his cuisine Esmeraldina (Ana Paula Arósio), but he never declares his love to her. When he loses the mortgage of his farm to Nogueira, who got married to Esmeraldina, Ponciano goes to the court trying to prove that Nogueira is a werewolf.

I expected to watch a great film, but "O Coronel e o Lobisomem" is quite disappointing. The story has some good moments, but the archaic and unusual vocabulary in Portuguese is boring and irritating, with long speeches of the character of Diogo Vilela. The character of Ana Paula Arósio is never clear whether she is manipulative, since she married the villain Nogueira and uses her charm to help her husband to raise money with the proud Ponciano, or she really likes Ponciano. The conclusion is extremely silly and illogical. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Coronel e o Lobisomem" ("The Colonel and the Werewolf")
