[Diamantino is] is, the most self-indulgent movie that one would ever expect to find in Cannes. [Full review in Spanish]

Forest Gump meets Brexit.
August 16, 2018
It's hard to knock its ambitious nature, but with nothing to ground the film's escalating insanity in, it all feels like two frantic filmmakers seeing what they can get away with, quietly laughing as they pile on further absurd elements.
April 3, 2019
Here's a movie very satisfied with its own zaniness.

[The film] could have been sharper, but it ends up being overshadowed by the charming portrait of its protagonist. I think that without losing this fable tone, it could have delved into the political satire. [Full Review in Spanish]

Surely big pharma, right-wing manipulation, and the endless greed of the already wealthy deserve something a little harsher than this ninety-seven-minute underwear ad.
May 11, 2018
There might be some cult potential in these Pythonesque larks but it is hard to discern where.
May 7, 2019
There are some stray, scattered laughs to be found here and there, but ultimately Diamantino is more exhausting than entertaining.

"Diamantino" is one of those movies that looks super fun to make but is mind-numbing to actually watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

What Diamantino lacks in cohesiveness it mostly makes up for with ambition.

May 20, 2019
Bioethics, offshore banking, the surveillance state, celebrity in the age of social media, the politics of immigration-Diamantino is, through its expansive menagerie of subjects as well as its formal maneuvers, a relentlessly contemporary work of art.
April 1, 2019
Diamantino, with its scathing commentary on how the media has allowed a right-wing uprising, remains relevant up until the final whistle.

May 23, 2019
It sizzles with a comic energy rare for a movie with such blunt and weighty political commentary.
June 25, 2019
Slapping together hot-button topics into a sub-Lubischian plot, the self-consciously zany Diamantino squeaks by on charm.
March 25, 2019
Diamantino might prove too strange for wider audiences, but it's never boring due to its sheer unpredictability. It also boasts a commendable performance by Cotta.

'Diamantino' is a prodigy that unfolds with ease between the parody and the espionage thriller. [Full review in Spanish]

July 11, 2019
Diamantino is a gorgeous, kind-hearted fable about acceptance of who people are, rather than who we want them to be. A brightly coloured modern-day fairy tale with an innocent at the centre. It is funny, outrageous and incredible to look at.

May 10, 2019
It's exhilarating to watch something so outlandishly original as Diamantino. The fluffy pink social realist fantasy satire for the ages.
February 28, 2019
Imagine a Roger Moore-era James Bond film where the Bond girl takes the lead role. In fact, she isn't a girl at all, but rather a vapid yet sweet, gorgeous male soccer player whose life is upended by global conspiracies and familial trauma.
October 15, 2018
If you are a fan of weird films, this one will be right up your alley.
