Portuguese comedy
7 August 2019 | by calcunhaSee all my reviews

Great Portuguese thriller/ comedy, trying to approach the good quality from the American movies with the same style. Portuguese cinema has improved a lot in the last years, and this one is an excellent example of good entrapment, well directed and well shoted. I would recommend to everyone who likes this gender of movies. And the type of humour? from the North, of course.
