Movie Info

Diamantino (Carloto Cotta), the world's premiere soccer star, loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, he sets out on a delirious odyssey -- in which he must confront neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and abuse at the hands of his evil twin sisters -- all part of a deranged hunt for the source of genius.

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (60) | Rotten (9)

  • "Diamantino" is one of those movies that looks super fun to make but is mind-numbing to actually watch.

  • "Diamantino" is no less committed to these ideas than it is to its own uneven, unforgettable lunacy.

  • The whole enterprise has a charm to it and it certainly is never boring. Bewildering, maybe, but never boring.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It sizzles with a comic energy rare for a movie with such blunt and weighty political commentary.

  • As these two characters, Cotta and Tavares make an unusually appealing odd couple - and the most idiosyncratic rooting interests the movies have served up this year.

  • Feels fated to be remembered as the "giant fluffy puppy soccer movie," and both the giant fluffy puppies and Cotta provide enough laughs to make it worthwhile.
