Shico Menegat
4 February 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

His acting is the axis of a bitter- melancholic film about loneliness, exhibition as only form of fake happiness and real sense of life, about friendless, pragmaticism and tough choices, about different levels of ambiguity. A not comfortable film, familiar story in many aspects, it have the virtue to propose a bizarre character - Pedro- reminding a dandy , a Gothic character, a fragile ephebus, a sort of Manierism image and the androgenity. Short, Shico Menegat is the lead motif to see this story from Porto Aleggre.
