Nonsense Comedy of Black Humor
26 April 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In São Paulo, the middle-aged housewife and taxidermist Elvira (Ana Lúcia Torre) reports to the police that her husband Onofre (Germano Haiut) is missing. The chief of police assigns the snoopy and inconvenient Detective Fuinha (Aramis Trindade) to investigate the disappearance of Onofre.

The lonely Elvira talks to her blender that recalls the time when Elvira and Onofre have a small establishment where "he" prepares the juices that are served over a counter. When Onofre and Elvira are forced to close the bar, they bring the blender to their simple kitchen. Elvira uses to talk to the blender while Onofre seeks a job. He finds a position of night watchman and one day Onofre takes the blender with him telling that he would buy a new one. When Onofre returns home, he brings the same appliance back and the blender does not talk to Elvira. She pushes him and the blender tells that Onofre has an affair with a nurse and they have spent the day on the beach. On the next morning, Elvira follows Onofre and she sees her husband meeting his mistress on the beach. In the night, Onofre has a great surprise while sleeping and the blender has to work a lot.

"Reflexões de um Liquidificador" is a nonsense comedy of black humor, with a narrative very funny of Selton Mello performing the voice of a blender that talks to his owner. The dark and bleak story slightly recalls 1995 "Mushrooms" (a.k.a. "Cogumelos Gostosos de Morrer"), where two old ladies need to get rid off the body of a thief that had died in their bed & breakfast with a large amount while they are under surveillance of a snoopy detective. The motives are different, but the way Elvira disposes the body of her husband is gore and nasty, and the viewer needs to have stomach to see the whole scene. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Reflexões de um Liquidificador" ("Reflections of a Blender")
