Good movie... excellent acting by Joaquim and all the others
15 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Lionel did it again. Finally, a Portuguese director that is not afraid to actually entertain and tell a story. This is not his first movie, but it is certainly one where he proves that he can be of international quality.

There were still a few little glitches here and there, but the absolutely staggering interpretation of all the actors completely makes you forget (and forgive) it.

I rented the DVD and also checked the director's comments. And sadly I noticed that he never refers to Joaquim de Almeida's interpretation, who was at his best in his powerful and dramatic role as a cop. The director mentioned everybody and praised everybody, except the great actor. He only mentioned Joaquim's name to comment about some stuff about his availability to film. It did not feel right and I thought this to be tasteless and wanted to mention it here.
