Diamantino Reviews

June 27, 2019
"Diamantino" is one of those movies that looks super fun to make but is mind-numbing to actually watch.

"Diamantino" is no less committed to these ideas than it is to its own uneven, unforgettable lunacy.
May 24, 2019
The whole enterprise has a charm to it and it certainly is never boring. Bewildering, maybe, but never boring.

It sizzles with a comic energy rare for a movie with such blunt and weighty political commentary.

As these two characters, Cotta and Tavares make an unusually appealing odd couple - and the most idiosyncratic rooting interests the movies have served up this year.

Feels fated to be remembered as the "giant fluffy puppy soccer movie," and both the giant fluffy puppies and Cotta provide enough laughs to make it worthwhile.

The film is fun, but, for all its inventiveness, it's a bit tame, with its nice-but-dim hero. But Diamantino is never dull.

Utterly bonkers, heartfelt and perfectly tied together. Goal!

October 5, 2018
Part B-movie spoof, part handcrafted satire, and always driven by a genuine vision for a better tomorrow, Diamantino is like looking at today's Europe through a funhouse mirror, and somehow seeing it more clearly as a result.

September 5, 2018
Part political satire, part fantasy, part I-don't-even-know-what, Diamantino is exactly the type of surreal concoction that begs to be discovered by unsuspecting audiences.

A witty, gender-bending fairytale for adults, complete with a Cinderella protagonist.

"Love has reasons that even reason can't understand," muses Diamantino in voiceover at one point; so does this lovably ludicrous film.
May 11, 2018
Love it or hate it, this title will surely be hotly debated wherever it goes, and that's just based on the story it contains, not the outstanding way in which everything has been imagined, assembled and played.
