A crude portrait of a country
It's been only eight days since I finally had the chance to go to the cinema and watch this movie, about which I'd already read A LOT.

'Cronicamente Inviável' ('Chronically Unfeasible' in English) is a harsh punch on the face of Brazilian middle-class. The way reality is displayed in the film suggests that the role of cynicism in our society is more important that one would think.

The great achievement of 'Chronically...' is showing to the world the amount of corruption, violence, racism and hatred every Brazilian citizen carries within WITHOUT trying to formulate a 'feasible' way to reconstruct the country.

The film is not suitable for everyone, but if you've been through pictures like, for instance, the 'Dogma 95' series, you'll find no problem. Foreign audiences would never be able to grasp the real meaning of it, though, without the aid of some basic notions of Brazilian geography and sociology. The way Sérgio Bianchi (the director) relates cities from the Northeast (Salvador), Southeast (Rio and São Paulo, where the story takes place) and South (Curitiba), is vital for a thorough comprehension of the plot. In the same way, the knowledge of Brazilian history proves to be useful when the picture deals with the Indian and Negro issues.

The ending of the film, open and symbolic, stuffs the viewer's brain with intriguing questions worth being thought about.
