Critic Reviews for Diamantino

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (4)

Part B-movie spoof, part handcrafted satire, and always driven by a genuine vision for a better tomorrow, Diamantino is like looking at today's Europe through a funhouse mirror, and somehow seeing it more clearly as a result.

Part political satire, part fantasy, part I-don't-even-know-what, Diamantino is exactly the type of surreal concoction that begs to be discovered by unsuspecting audiences.

"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.

Abrantes and Schmidt keep things light and constantly inventive, but Diamantino's perpetual selflessness makes the darker satire about the creep of right-wing 'build that wall' ideology bite deep.

There's a wonderful method to the madness of Diamantino, which crams an unbelievable amount of commentary into a surreal, entertaining 90 minutes.
