Hugo Vieira da Silva,
Too bad to be true. I simply gave up watching it after 30 minutes of suffering.
It was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Portuguese cinema has this curse of pseudo-intellectuals who keep pushing their "vision" of what cinema should be onto others. They're wrong and it's not just because they do bad movies, it's because you can do bad movies and still make something that can be enjoyable. Not our directors! They hold the holy grail of truth and they think that "bright" ideas should only be presented to the audience in the most boring way you can imagine.
