They tried, for the very first time, to do a movie, a portuguese movie, that finally knows how to use the amount of money it has on his shoulders. They tried, for the very first time to make a movie that manages to take people to the theaters and not make them think it's another portuguese movie. But Leonel Vieira already has been trying to do this with his previous features. So have they succeeded? Almost. The movie is the greatest technical achievement in portuguese cinema. For the very first time we have a film in Panavision, and for the very first time with a real symphonic score. It is a pity, then, that they chose such a weak actor to play the main role. Diogo Morgado tries, but he has too few lines and not a sign of character depth. The supporting characters are way better. Anyway, I hope that Leonel Vieira continues developing this taste for movies made for the audience... i sure wanna make them that way someday...
