Nachtergaele or Claudio Assis?
12 October 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Brazilian film industry keeps selling the same sort of movies. Is this disturbing and brutal perspective becoming the new face of Brazilian movies? Hope not. When I first heard about this film directed by a fantastic actor I thought that it'd be absolutely innovating. But I'm afraid that is not true. The brutality brought in makes it very hard to stand. That's why it reminds me of Claudio Assis. And that is why it is quite disappointing. Oliveira plays a tricky character and now and then commits a few acting mistakes. Furthermore the mix of hopelessness and violence does not match the beautiful film location at all! Brazil doesn't always have to be shown in a mystical, raw and tough way. I think we've had enough of these dark impressions. Salute.
