bah bah bah boringgg
28 November 2003 | by ContactedSee all my reviews

I dont think anyone but the director is gonna come and look at this page. So, I apologize Mr.Black but this movie wasnt very good filmmaking. The story is interesting but you cant just rely on dialogue and rhetoric to carry it. You need drama and action. And also the english accents in this movie are so ridiculous you cant take the movie seriously. Why do the Brazilian characters talk to themselves in english? And how come EVERY one knows english, from the maid to the prostitute, and the main characters cant bother themselves to learn portuguese? And if theyre german, why do they constantly speak english to themselves? Boring and a little bit pretentious, but you had good intentions so I cant blame you.
