For the second time in a row I felt disappointed!
26 April 2013 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Two times in a row! The second time I watch a movie directed by Nicolau Breyner expecting to see a nice film, the second time I get a big disappointment! The first one was CONTRATO and now A TEIA DE GELO. Everyone knows the major qualities of Nicolau Breyner as an actor and also as a TV director, and it was this last feature, his large curriculum directing TV programs, that made take for sure that his movies could not be bad… The second time I feel so wrong about this…

If CONTRATO was terrible this last movie is not better, maybe just a little bit in production, because all the rest is awful. The main idea of the plot is not that bad (it was this main idea together with the trailer - which is very well done, in opposition to the movie (!!) - that motivated me to watch this film by the way…) but all the plot's disclosures are terrible. Besides the plot is full of holes and disconnected traces which end in a pseudo surprising conclusion which just bury this film even more! Yes, it doesn't start too well but it ends even worse!

The acting is not good either, especially on the secondary roles. The screenplay is terrible too. It has so many cheesy lines that out of context it could seem as taken from a spoof movie (like that popular Portuguese expression that must not have a similar in English but would be translated to something like this: "He went away to buy cigarettes and never came back"!! From this point you can see the quality of this screenplay!!). About the soundtrack I just do a simple question: What is Adele doing here??

Well, after watch the trailer I went to this movie expecting to see a nice suspense thriller (made in Portuguese standards of course, but a good one) but I just got this, a movie which I don't even know how to define… Suspense? Thriller? Where are they? I didn't see them… For the second time in a row it's a 2/10!
