Merry Christmas... NOT
1 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I really liked the premiere from Selton Mello as director with a movie that shows a family in a not conventional Christmas Eve.

The shake camera, a strong soundtrack and the depression are the elements that build the plot dense and sad.

The film shows clearly what the family institution is dwindling and that is a dead end.

I hope Selton Mello back more quickly with a beautiful movie, poking the wound of many who live in sorrow and in need of medicine black box warning.

Merry Christmas or not! Vitor Stefano Sessões
