Critic Reviews for Diamantino
"Love has reasons that even reason can't understand," muses Diamantino in voiceover at one point; so does this lovably ludicrous film.
Love it or hate it, this title will surely be hotly debated wherever it goes, and that's just based on the story it contains, not the outstanding way in which everything has been imagined, assembled and played.
It's hard to knock its ambitious nature, but with nothing to ground the film's escalating insanity in, it all feels like two frantic filmmakers seeing what they can get away with, quietly laughing as they pile on further absurd elements.
A witty, gender-bending fairytale for adults, complete with a Cinderella protagonist.
It's all as ridiculous as it sounds - but mostly entertainingly so - as first-time filmmakers Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt wholeheartedly commit to their premise, as well as to the accompanying farcical tone.
