The actors lack chemistry; their romantic connection feels like lust amplified by loneliness.
It's a typical example of the kind of empty, lunk-headed movies that are made these days by directors who think it's interesting to watch two people walking down the street carrying boxes.
This whole thing is so brazenly a male fantasy...
The screenplay ... falls too easily into clichés about rough men and troubled women to ever achieve something truly resonant about the highs and fallouts of chance encounters.
[A] quietly bombastic and emotionally oblivious romantic drama.
Less than meets the eye and ear.
The feature format is misjudged and the screenplay needed some fleshing out, but Porto is elegant, eloquent, and clearly the work of a technically skilled director.
PORTO is more of an academic exercise, rather than a film with a thesis.
Its dramaturgy is a bit blunt, although, in a similar vein as Boyhood (2014), as viewers are just seeing the highlights, those of a short romance. The film feels all the more sketch-like with its 76-minute runtime.
Porto sails... in love and inspired, but knows she can never see the sunrise. [Full review in Spanish]
The coruscating critique of the pathetic male is thick with predecessors... Jake possesses not a shred of discernible talent, poetry, wit or virtue. Simply, it's an apt, savage take on the fugly American.
The two actors have an appealing chemistry that conveys both intimacy and poignancy.
