My opinion over this film
21 January 2009 | by santoriSee all my reviews

I saw this film yesterday with a friend. We both didn't like it. Not only because it's empty in all type of content, but too because it didn't catch our interest on continuing seeing it. The plot line isn't much interesting, but I saw the film anyway... you never know.. things can turn different and amazing sometimes. But it's not the case. All dialogs aren't interesting, the characters are simple and very 'light'. all the film have sexual content, trying to catch our interest or to disgust us, but nothing of that happened to me. there is not good moment in this film, you know? when in the middle of some confusion there's a word spoken, or a moment captured, or a different camera point of view that make us see something different. None of this in this 2 hours length film. My vote is 2. why isn't 1, you ask? wheel, because of two things: first the little girl. isn't a great performance, but I've liked her presence in this none sense. And the second is the city: Porto is a dark city, and this film catches that feeling, the city I use to call our 'Gotham City'.
