Movie Info

Based on the opera 'Rigoletto,' this is the story of a middle-aged corporate climber who has lost sight of his humanity. Rick is a cold, emotionless employee of the Image Company, a marketing firm situated in Manhattan's financial district. But Rick has another life, unknown to anyone at his company -- a seemingly quiet domestic arrangement with his teenage daughter, Eve.

By hewing so faithfully to their source, the creators don't let the material pursue its own direction, and the result feels dramatically arbitrary.

[The] story and emotions seem a little too big for the frame.

An ill-advised combination of tragedy and satire, it generally plays like the coffee-break fantasy of a temp who messed up a lunch order and paid for it with his dignity.

Everything about this curio is claustrophobic.

Impressive -- and utterly depressing -- feature debut.

It's rotten to the core and right down to the end. But if you find that such extremes can be fascinating, then the movie may cheer you, not because it is happy, but because it goes for broke.

Julgando que ambientar Rigoletto nos dias atuais é o bastante para ser aplaudido, o filme erra nos diálogos e no tom da narrativa, tornando-se insípido e descartável.

Very funny, very dark and very clever -- a tale of the corporate id gone wild that promises to upset even the most jaded and hardened of sensibilities.

Wcreenwriter Daniel Handler [(a.k.a. Lemony Snicket)] employs an O. Henry-like twist of irony that first-time director Curtiss Clayton telegraphs long before it strikes.

Manages to be both disquieting and entertaining -- and that's quite a cunning feat of cinema.

Sometimes it's hard to hear the dialogue because the gears of the plot are trying so hard and creaking so loudly.

The intended black comedy is no more than a wan mix of over-the-top unpleasantness and obvious psychologizing.

A tragic story graced with lots of comedic touches, which makes for an often awkward tone.

A new mythology with new morals for a rough, uncertain age.

Rick is dark, dark comedy at its most hedonistic.

A deliciously bitter tale of lust and betrayal among dog-eat-dog Wall Street bigwigs.
