| Artful look into a somewhat tortured soul
The film is structured around the life of the main character, Benjamim Zambraia, an actor and former model struggling to cope with events that happened in his past. The movie is ripe with cyclical themes, often flashing back and forth between past and present, and has a kind of beautifully harsh aesthetic to it. Scenes from the past are juxtaposed against scenes from the present, and it becomes apparent that history appears to be repeating itself in Benjamim's life. None of the characters are particularly sympathetic, which I think adds to the ambiance of the movie. Overall, I found the film to be a well-crafted glimpse into some of the less attractive qualities of the human psyche.
