Great directorial debut!
10 December 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Matheus Nachtergaele is known as a superb and a most complete actor, and now as he sits behind the cameras in his directorial debut, a good feeling comes out of this experience: we want more! Definitely, the film has some highs and lows, but overall he delivers the message and still wets our appetite for he chooses an excellent story and the perfect landscape that mixes perfectly all plurality of Brazilian's multicultural backgrounds. The images blend water and oil magically; however, one might feel that there could be some exaggerations in some of the acting, and some long pauses in the script, which might slow things down in very few moments. In sum, I believe to be a great debut, and this new director deserves all possible attention now, and I hope, in a brief future as well. Beautiful work Matheus!
