Storyline

What's the importance of luck in life? How much effort and talent is enough to guarantee a solid carrier? Is luck part of the craft? Bianca is an excellent actor but theater doesn't pay the bills yet. In order to make a living, she impersonates movie divas and promotes events. Bianca auditions for a big international production and gets the part. The director of the film, inspired by her work, changes the character he wrote into a version of Bianca. Is this the chance of a lifetime? Craft is a Brazilian independent film, made possible through co-productions and partnerships with companies such as Canal Brasil and Link Digital. This is Gustavo Pizzi's first feature. The film discusses matters such as talent, hope and fate. Written by Anonymous

excellent story, with good insights
27 January 2012 | by diogobardalSee all my reviews

I particularly think that every good movie at some point HAS to talk, directly or not, about movies itself. Riscado is one of these movies, and it reminded me a lot of Sinedoque New York, or Lisbon story, even if I consider these movies superior in many aspects, and they do not talk about the same things. But all of them have something to talk about.

In the description of the movie it says it is about luck. I disagree i think the movie is about the imminence of life changing events, and the mixed good/bad but mainly bad feelings that comes with them. when talking about that it touched slightly an universal theme.
