Cláudio da Silva,
I want the hour and a half of my life back. Bad bad movie.
The main character did not look convincing at all, what a bad performance.
Also the story as many holes. A night woman working on a "girls" bar and has to seduce clients but never have sex with them even tough we are lead to believe all her co-workers do? Come on. We want to believe in the character, not personify someone as a "angel" whose she's not.
The parrot in the movie is only used to instigate hate against Nicolau Breyner's character.
The violation scene at the pool has no connection with the rest of the movie whatsoever.
And a lot of many plot holes and story failures i don't have the patience to describe.
Also the monster publicity campaign of the movie lead me to believe it was based on real facts. People in general did. Even the people related to the film promoted that idea. Well, someone who believes in a story like that can only be an idiot.
I gave it a 2 out of 10 just because of some few moments of average acting performance of António Cerdeira and Nicolau Breyner.
Don't waste your time on this.
