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.

I will use the same vulgar and careless language as the movie.
What the f ck did i just watch?
I like genre cinema, be it sci-fi, horror, surrealism, fantasy, a.o, but this is a big pile of steaming sh t.
There are some good ideas, but the directing is atrocious, with lots of shaky camera to hide the clumsiness of the directors, and absurd frameworks that not even the great Jess Franco would use (but the spanish director knew what he was doing, there is a big difference).
And, let's talk about the cast ... the fewer skills and the more over-the-top you can be ... the better. It's a shame because Carloto Cotta is an above average actor and is being underused in this abysmal sh t.
Despite having some good ideas (I liked the fuzzy dogs) and some interesting sequences, this fails roundly.
I don't think I will ever give the benefit of the doubt to these directors.
This is, speaking in pure, hard and raw terms, a beautiful sh t in 3 acts.
