Storyline

In 2011 Portugal began the so-called "year of the Troika" (EU, IMF and ECB budget cuts and economic restructuring), with the level of debt among the Portuguese people reaching staggering amounts and a growing number of families and companies unable to repay their installment loans. Jorge is an unemployed boxer on the verge of losing his son and his wife, who has decided to return to Brazil. As a means of paying off his debt and persuading his wife to remain in Portugal, Jorge accepts a job with a debt-collection agency, which will drag him into a world of violence and crime.

Nuno Lopes
17 March 2018 | by lapzootSee all my reviews

Afterall the portuguese cinema have a chance if they want... the problem is always the same: our government doesn't care about art and in this case about cinema! it's really rare to have a good portuguese movie and this one is. A shame that few people went to the cinema to see this one and to show everyone that is possible to do great cinema and to have audience! Another problem is that the portuguese people only goes to the cinema to see portuguese movies only when the movies are shit with some dirty jokes...

Nuno Lopes is great here and almost everthing he does since comic days he wes great. I hope to see him more often at the big screens and also hope that the portuguese press give him what he deserves!

Obrigado!
