beautiful adaptation
24 June 2009 | by (Porto Alegre, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Considering that Budapest was, in my opinion, one of those novels which look very hard to be adapted to a movie, it was with a lot of curiosity that i went to the movies to watch Walter Carvalho's homonymic adaptation. For my delight, Budapest not only thrives to depict the essence of the novel - with a well-deserved reverence towards Buarque's work - but even takes it into a greater extent. Leonardo Medeiro's acting is superb as it is the cinematography - which is not surprising if you consider that Carvalho is the cinematographer of movies such as 'Behind the Sun' and 'Mango Yellow'. It's funny to think that Chico Buarque, who had never been to Budapest before writing the novel, appears in a cameo role in the Budapest airport.
