it's long, though it's short
20 September 2005 | by movielover-dudeSee all my reviews

You sit to watch this movie and you think you shouldn't have done that (sit). One, because the movie is almost finishing. And two, because it's boring and extended. There are some very bad performances, including Andre Arteche and Pedro Furtado. And there are some very grotesque things in the production, such as: some people in the background in some scenes are looking at the camera, the mike is visible a lot of times, the camera is visible a lot of times too. However, there are some shots that are very beautiful, such as the one where we see Roza picking up her stuff to leave. But that doesn't save this movie, that can only make you smile, but not laugh.
