An entire mock underwear campaign featuring Carloto Cotta was created and images were used in the film itself and in the marketing campaign. It is a satirical representation of the numerous underwear photo-shoots done by Cristian Ronaldo and Carloto Cotta similarly appears in tight white underwear with muscles flexed, oiled and glistening for the camera. The film-makers said they had a lot of fun making all these fake ad campaigns and also created a lot of Diamantino swag like jerseys, bed-sheets, portraits etc to represent the narcissism and commercialization of a famous sport star.

The occasional nice rear and flat abs does not make for a worthy film
Some film reviews require very few words to explain what a waste of movie viewing time a film can be. "Dimantino," by director/writers Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt, is one of those films. Dubbed a "gay film," this subject matter was almost impossible to find anywhere in the film. Sure, Dimantino (Carloto Cotta), with those soccer player flat abs, is a cutie who eventually the audience gets to see nude from the rear, "butt" the occasional nice rear and flat abs does not make for a worthy film. Especially when the storyline includes seeing fluffy puppies on the soccer filed, money laundering, cheesy mean-girl sisters (Anabela and Marardia Moreira), sale of their brothers DNA to Dr. Lamborghini (Cara Maciel), a corny mad scientist lab, adoption of a refugee child (Cloe Tavares) - who is obviously an adult, and a commercial shoot that encourages separation from the EU, and well you get the picture. It's hard to believe this film won 2018 Cannes Film Festival "Critics Week Grand Prize" and Cine Ceara National Film Festival "Feature Film Trophy" Awards. Don't waste you time here!
