Absolutely boring
2 September 2009 | by jpedroccarvalhoSee all my reviews

A very bad film.

I saw it at its premier in Porto. One of the few things this film has in a positive way is the look and filming of the city.

The story could be told in an interesting way, because the idea is not that bad. But no, it's absolutely boring. Maybe this is one of those "for elite" films, but what an elite, it must be a very little one.

It's also a long film for its content. 110 minutes that did not bring me anything substantial, except, as I specified before, the positive point, the city.

It's a pity that a movie filmed in such beautiful places is almost the antithesis of that beauty in what refers to the script.
