Bad. Very bad. Worst than I expected.
11 October 2003 | by rodrigospallSee all my reviews

Ok, the movie has some moments: Maria Fernanda Candido is a good actress, and she tries to do a good job- and does it in the most time she is on screen. But it´s montage sucks- man, they really manage to do things even worst than Xuxa Meneghel´s movies. The special participation of a brasilian band (Capital Inicial) is, in "Dom", just as good as KLB (a teen band) apeared in "Xuxa Requebra"- for they who havent watched any of the two movies, imagine that the director just decided to stop to tell his story, and decide to show a band plaing. After a few minutes, he decide to go back and tell his story once again, and begins it from the beggining. Marcos Palmeira is just as good as in "Como ser solteiro"- what wanna means, irritant. The good moments are proporcioned for Maria Fernanda Candido (that´s her first movie) and Bruno Garcia- and they would saved the movie, if the both have a few more minutes together on screen...

I think that the problem with this movie is that everybody on the production worked in the divulgation saing that "Dom" was a Machado de Assis´s "Dom Casmuro"´s adaptation, and, in the very first minutes, its quite evident for the audience that "Dom" it´s not a straight adaptation from the book.

The book its great- come on, Assis is the best writer in the whole world, followed directelly by Hemingway. So, to adapt anything that he (or else, THEY) had write is not a easy thing to do.

From Assis, I have enjoyed André Klotzel´s work in "Memórias Póstumas"- THAT is a adaptation, a a very good adaptation. But this "Dom" is a lot of bullsh*t- and it would be a nice movie if the director decided to get away from the book´s shadow- what hasn´t happened.
