Adorei
1 January 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the "2ª Mostra de Cinema Brasileiro" in Lisbon, Portugal. On that day, all the movies played were directed by Jorge Furtado. I'd already seen "O Homem que Copiava" (on DVD in Portugal) and "Meu Tio Matou um Cara" (on DVD in Brazil) and enjoyed them a lot, so i was ready for some more. I invited some friends to come along. The result was extremely positive. We all laughed out hard, along with the rest of the audience that filled the cinema (São Jorge). It's a lightweight comedy, low-budget, with great acting, an original plot and, of course, some political and social criticism about the "system". But ultimately, it's a fun, feel good and intelligent movie... unlike something stupid/unfunny and 1000 x bigger budget like "Evan Almighty", which I saw yesterday. I would compare this movie with a Portuguese movie that also came out on 2007 "Dot.com", which i also highly recommend.

Unfortunately, other Portuguese country fellows who didn't had the opportunity to see this film at this festival, will never make to see it. The movie wasn't released on cinema, and probably will not be released on DVD either. "O Homem que Copiava", actually was released on DVD in Portugal, but "Meu Tio Matou um Cara" (as well as many other good Brazilian titles) wasn't. One of the many misfits of piracy, drying the funds necessary for the distribution of good movies that are not necessarily "blockbusters"... :(
