Food for thought : Although outlandish but a nice film which ends too soon.
Some films make valiant attempts at making themselves likable by showing situations not visible in our daily lives.This is not at all a bad strategy.However one must bear in mind that as a film is a visual medium there must also be elements which can attract an audience and incite critics should a motion picture were to strike a fine balance between art and commerce.Crime Delicado is one such film from Brazil which shows some grotesque circumstances which go on to demonstrate that the reality is not what or how it appears and is unjustly perceived by our naked eyes.The entire film is a nice exercise in exploring the complexities of male female relationships.The director of the film Beto Brant has also shown a contemplative spectrum of various arts like Painting,Theater etc. The core of the film concerns the unraveling of an artist's predicament who is framed on trumped-up charges.At the end of the film after watching stupendous performance by Lilian Taubib one can realize why some crimes are indeed delicate.
