Seu Jorge plays a small part in this movie as a Brazilian drug-lord in Caracas, and it's probably only thing worth seeing (he sings a bit too). The movie is basically about two friends: Sebastian (Edgar Ramirez) a theater actor and Galo (Erich Wildpret) a gay fashion designer, and the relationship between them and others around them , in their careers' successes and failures, and how messed up life can get when you make stupid mistakes. The plot is not that bad actually, but the movie is told in an unnecessarily stupid non-linear style (ellipsis) with cheap special effects, very bad acting, and a cinematography that tries too hard to look like a fashion magazine instead of a crime drama, that end up being far too distracting to enjoy Seu's performance or the decent plot idea behind it. Still, i think Arias Nath made a good debut, he'll probably make better pictures, i just hope he focuses more on characters and plot rather than trying to make 'cool' or 'avant garde' stuff.
