A mind blowing not a really mind blowing
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Saturday, 2 AM, Brasil.

Can't sleep and I just start browsing TV. Suddenly a nude scene plus a awful band, in a row, catch my attention. Matheus Nachtergaele shows up on the telly and I stare (about more 20 painful minutes).

That's it.

The review "An Intense and Daring Joke!" from "rotildao" (UK) says it all about this movie with a single line: 'The script and editing are the downfalls of the movie, like a band without a bass player (or like the one-day-band in the movie)'

And, sure, Rosanne Mulholland is really something absolutely amazing.
