An original and unique parody to reality shows.In Portugal, different celebrities, from different artistic areas, "live" together in a house where everything looks real, but it's not. Pure comedy and social satire.
This is the story of a tall 10-year-old girl. She is working on a school project that aims to explain how the world works to her class. She is faced with difficult social and political questions that even adults struggle to answer.
Writer, Visual Artist and pioneer of the Queer movement in Latin America, Pedro Lemebel shook up conservative Chilean society during Pinochet's dictatorship in the 1980s. Body, blood and ... See full summary »
I love Bruno Aleixo's character and João Moreira's craziness. Recently, I devoured Aleixo PSI and I think it fits perfectly as an example of something in between from the movie and the other short series by the way it successfully "goes out" from the natural habitat. The thing is... Aleixo PSI is shorter! 4 times shorter?
Although I don't think this movie shouldn't suffer from his length, it happens that it did and that "suffering" had been honestly revealed in every promotional interview I saw with João, as he tries to explain (or excuse himself?) this attempt of fitting this character in a 90 minutes movie. Maybe his not-too-proud-grinding-presence shown a backstage struggle to pull this off.
This shouldn't have been the kind of a aching struggle that I paid to watch on a theater. It was a shame to watch the total lack of creativity that fell upon this characters... and let's not confuse this with that good ol' nonsense! Definitely, João and Pedro Santo's "marriage" need some marital counseling... or the problem was just the pressure from the demanding opening doors to Brazilian audience? Or was it just the result of two guys not used to get out from their natural habitual? The thing is: no matter how fancy the birthday box is wrapped, it doesn't mean I should eat all its content. Basically, the only thing that I "ate" was what the trailer shown: the ADR work and acting (mainly) from Rogério Samora (cheers to Adriano Luz too). And they even failed to give it's best use to these actors! Would it make it to expensive, little "Johnny" boy? So you should get rid of ALL of the other actors because, other than that, are many meaningless acting parts... and many obvious attempts to gain some extra time just to fill the movie with some extra minutes. 90 minutes? They could even made it to 91! Bah! Laughable! Even more laughable is to hear a renowned Portuguese film critic, Rui Pedro Tendinha, praising this movie. The world is blind and doomed!
Normally, I see that this could have been interpreted as good nonsense humour but, let's get real: why the hell there is so many meaningless silences and so many meaningless scenes that end up going nowhere? Just miserable! So, with this lousy, poorly-laughable creativity exercise, I felt deceived in almost every scene because, no matter how many times João Moreira tried to excuse himself about this being low budget... instead of this typical Portuguese weeping argument he - more than everybody - should know that there's no need for a huge budget to do an amazing comedy short show. His job should have been to stick together several parts of great comedy shows as he is more than used to do. This was lazy and had nothing to do with it... not even with nonsense.
