Too poetic
11 August 2020 | by omeralaaSee all my reviews

Cinematography was fascinating and unique, (Leo Bittencourt) used the 4:3 aspect ratio and it looked attractive, you can pause at anytime and you'll see a beautiful portrait. But does cinematography only makes a good movie?

The movie was too slow paced, it was really boring, (Matias Mariani) added a lot of poetic scenes that doesn't mean anything, also the dialogue was poetic.

O.C. Ukeje and Indira Nascimento performance was good but there was nothing exceptional.

The story was ridiculous and bizarre, does anyone care about what did the movie try to say? I think the movie was too personal and it wasn't for me.
