Not bad , not bad at all
26 December 2004 | by theking-16See all my reviews

I like this movie . a story about Love and racism , a story about the gangs that live in the capital of Portugal , Lisbon . The Portuguese cinema is weak . Its one of the best Portuguese films i ever saw, but there are not many good movies made in Portugal . Of course this movie its not perfect , far from that , but its pretty cool the final result , lets not forget that we are talking about a Portuguese film . The actors are young , but they did a good job. We could not expect more from this movie , the Portuguese cinema doesn't have money , but the movie have some parts that are pretty cool , like i said , for a Portuguese Film . I think that " Jaime " is a better movie than this one .
