Virados do Avesso (Directed by: Edgar Pêra; Written by: Henrique Cardoso Dias, Roberto Pereira, Frederico Pombares)
Starring: Diogo Morgado, Jorge Corrula, Marina Albuquerque, Nuno Melo, Rui Unas, José Wallenstein, Nicolau Breyner, Anselmo Ralph, Bárbara Guimarães
My thoughts on this film: In my humble opinion, this is more of a tragedy than a comedy.
The first thing that entered my mind when I began watching this movie was:'Is it a final project for a film course?'
It really felt like something made by amateurs, and I am not including the actors in this. They did the best they could with a bad product. I mean, you have the crème de la crème in acting, and what do you do? Something out of the ordinary in a very bad way, which starts by turning our beloved international Jesus into a 'figurine of a gaylord'. Something that makes you wonder how much of a homophobic could this director be. I am all for making fun of everything but there have to be boundaries, and this was not even funny!
Overall, I am not really sure what to make of it, but definitely not good!
