To be honest, after watching the previous two movies of this trilogy, I was expecting worse from this movie. Congratulations to Pedro Varela on a very successful movie, mostly when compared with the previous ones of Leonel Vieira.
Never forgetting that this 3 movies are not pure remakes of the movies of the decades of 30 and 40, in the "A Canção de Lisboa" the original plot was transposed to the current era with greater success. In terms of argument, this film is far superior to the 2 previous movies. Perchance because it remained more glued to the original story...
As to the representations, César Mourão makes a Vasco behind the potential that his character would allow. Despite the richness of Vasco character, rarely the impersonation was actually above average. On the other hand, on the role of Alice, Luana Martau was the biggest surprise of this movie! An awesome ability to transmit feelings and to generate emotions that I confess I wasn't expecting. And, to top it all, she sings beautifully! The union between Alice and her father, Miguel Guilherme, helped that this actor had his best performance of the 3 movies. Luana Martau is the biggest asset in this film!
Another aspect that I highlight in "A Canção de Lisboa" is the soundtrack. The sounds and melodies of Miguel Araújo made the movie more enjoyable, pleasant and sentimental. A clear improvement in the trilogy.
Therefore, knowing previously that you'll not see a masterpiece, you should go to the cinema to watch this simple, light and well achieved comedy.
