The movie is based on a praised 2013 graphic novel with same name. The graphic novel has a darker tone than the movie and is obviously oriented to older readers, as the characters has a long time publication history in Brazil. The movie followed a softer tone, just like the mainstream comics, which aims a younger public. See more »
"Turma da Monica- Laces" new film from the beloved Daniel Rezende, a young Brazilian director who brings with him an enormous expectation, seeing his great works and one of the names that can take Brazilian cinema to better days of glory. Here, his proposal is to make a film that pleases the nostalgic and the youngest public, about a Brazilian product of our culture that is present for almost 40 years in our lives and is loved by all, difficult task, but mission accomplished.
Thiago Dottori, writer of the feature, opts for a more childlike script, but with surprising moments, such as the monkey cry or the protagonism of scallion, both distoantes than we expected, but functional in the plot, without having to waste time in the construction characters , the process is shorter - Although the main plot is dragged by the three acts - and more fluid, we have more time for jokes, references and pure nostalgia, The only thing of script that does not please 100% is the central plot, it's kind of strange in comparison to the rest of the work, but we accept, since what we really want, is to revisit these characters of our childhood.
The movie has a cool soundtrack, ambiance and compositions of spectacular scenery and a good costume, the general portrayal of the characters is very good, another highlight of the film is the character of the crazy, played by Rodrigo Santoro, are just minutes from screen, but it is a spectacular adaptation of a comic to the cinema, fun, comic and caricature, and that even works as a lever, for the length that gets lost in rhythm between the second and third act.
Finally, thanks, the long awaited monica class makes us go back to childhood and review our beloved members of the lemon tree neighborhood, in a good live action, without being silly or ridiculous, the arduous task of adapting a children's comic in the movies so fun, serious and childish is fulfilled.
