| A Disrespectful Story Even for Slow Children
Today I have had my worst experience with Brazilian movies: I have watched about forty minutes of "Xuxa e os Duendes", the first Brazilian digital movie. This movie was included in the penultimate class of the Module II of the "Course of the History of Brazilian Cinema" to illustrate the cinema for infant-juvenile audiences in the beginning of the Twentieth-First Century, but it was actually an awful choice. The movie has reasonable special effects, but first of all, the screenplay is simply ridiculous, disrespectful even with children. The selection of the cast (actually, in the credits, everybody has a special participation) is non-sense: Ana Maria Braga, who presents cooking recipe on TV, seems to be reading the script; the entertainers Luciano Hulk and Gugu Liberato have never been actors, and certainly they wanted to prove this assertion; Leonardo Cordonis probably has a great godfather on TV or cinema business to play the important role of Damiz; and Xuxa, called Kira in the story, but somehow the movie is not called "Kira e os Duendes", has best performance as centerfold of "Ele e Ela" or "Playboy" magazines. Emiliano Queiroz and Guilherme Karan (with a minor participation) are great, as usual, and they do not deserve this turkey in their filmography. I really wanted to know the target-age of the audience aimed by the producers of this crap. My vote is one (awful).

Title (Brazil): "Xuxa e os Duendes" ("Xuxa and the Goblins")
