Turns into quite tense little one-on-one...
26 May 2020 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

This builds into quite an intriguing little film, this one. Jaime Freitas is a wealthy young man who discovers that his Mercedes has a puncture. When street-smart and insistent passer-by Tiago Aldeia offers to help him fix it he reluctantly accepts; when he then gets into the car with him afterwards we are left with a distinct feeling of menace - it's subtle, but it's there... There is little dialogue, but much of this is left our own imagination, expectations - and, to some extent, our prejudices.... Who's doing what to whom - or is nobody doing anything at all...?
