The director José Eduardo Belmonte has made some good movies, and some bad movies. But this one distunes from all others in his career. Maybe he tried to make money with this movie, which will absolutely fail.
The plot is the main problem of the movie, but the edition is bad, the sound effects are poor and the Direction of the actors is terrible. Belmonte had good experienced actors such as Milton Gonçalves, Selton Mello and Murilo Grossi, but they all play anecdotal characters, far from reality.
The premiere of Grazi Massafera in the cinema can't be considered, because her character is too bad, and probably it was directed in that way. So we can't blame her for the odd acting.
The movie lacks cohesion and the special effects are also bad, especially the duck one. The original music score is good, and the cinematography is reasonable.
In the first scene I thought it would be a children movie, but it isn't. There are gunshots and curse words that makes it inappropriate for children.
Unfortunately this is a very bad movie, from one Director of the same city of mine. Don't watch it.
