Colegas (Buddies) is a road movie that shows the simple things in life in a poetic light through the eyes of three young people with Down syndrome, who love movies and work at the video library of the institution where they have always lived in. One day, inspired by the movie "Thelma & Louise", they decide to run away using the gardener's old car to have a freedom experience. They travel to uncommon places in search of three simple wishes: Stalone wants to see the sea, Aninha looks for a husband and Marcio needs to fly. During this search, they embark on several adventures as if life was just child's play.Written by
It feels like a movie Wes Anderson has been trying to make for a long time. I'm not sure if "less self-conscious" is the right word, because the movie is self-conscious, it knows what it is and where it's going and it's not embarrassed by this fact.... if Wes could just relax a bit he would return to being as great as this movie is. Wes Anderson fans will love it!
I recommend it for everyone....and if you're learning Portuguese, it's a double gem due to the simple dialogue and clear narration.
I think if there had been a Star Wars reference in the movie, I'd have given it a 10! (If I missed one please let me know!)
