Audience Reviews for Do Começo ao Fim (From Beginning to End)
One of the few qualities of this film is the lyricism of the silent shots (well photographed by Ueli Steiger, who turned down Emmerich's 2012 to be in this project), but it is impossible to overlook the corny dialogue, weak performances and lack of conflict in this poorly written story.
Meant to be a taboo and extremely controversial love story, this just turns out to be a very unconvincing affair. Taking incest as his premise, Abranches seems to be more concerned with the exploitation of his theme. The dialogue is uninspired, there are too many sudden deaths for the convenience of narrative and all the melodrama seems straight out of a late night telenovela. It is really up to the two hunks in question, the excessive music score and luscious cinematography to save the day but that's a very big ask when it's a day worth forgetting. However, I would love to tie Putin to a chair and force him to see this so two stars from me!
Visually beautiful film. It presents a very challenging but at times awkward story line with intelligence and understanding. This is no ordinary gay-themed movie -- so many of which seem silly, predictable and even trite. This one requires the viewer to confront issues that are usually avoided in such films. It is not for the faint of heart nor for the prude.
