I've seen better Portuguese films, hence the low vote. However this movie has a particular value, it is a great social critic a depicts very well the ways in which politics and business deal with each other.
This movie has one asset which makes it even more interesting: the realism. This movie is based on a very recent true story that happened in Portugal, thats why any Portuguese person watching it will soon identify and familiarize with the movie.
Technically speaking, this movie doesn't impress, the soundtrack is basic, the picture too, the actors aren't amateurs but not very professional either! In spite of all these not so positive arguments the movie is entertaining and elucidating.
