This could have easily been a crime film but it is not.
So shame, this film from Portugual is a social and realistic feature, but unfortunately a pure drama and not a crime film, as we could expect when we see the main male characters, played by actors who look like hoodlums. Only firearms miss here. This could have been a masterpiece of film noir, but it remains only a social drama depicting the social collapse that stroke the country in 2011, when millions of people were in total bankrupt and became the victims of loan sharks. Ruthless men who received the authorization of the government, to use the most disgusting methods to pressure poor people like lemons. The main character is outstanding as a lost soul trying to make it. Although this is a cliché, it is very well done anyway.
