Directed by Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt
“Lovably ludicrous. The freshest blast of gonzo comic energy at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Part loopily queer sci-fi thriller, part faux-naive political rallying cry, glued together with candyfloss clouds of romantic reverie.”
“Critic’s Pick! Nothing less (and so much more) than the movie the world needs right now.”
“The kind of out-there plot that John Waters might have concocted had he ever taken an extensive screenwriting holiday on XTC in the Algarve. A smart exploration of the transgressive nature of queer desire. Finally, you can have your B-movie cake and eat it with grade-A ideas too.”
“A magical testimony to the transformative power of goodness. Pulls off a rare and delightful feat. It is imaginatively strange, but has a heart big enough to make sense of the insensible.”
“Has the audacity to be silly. But not only silly… it is impressively rooted in the prickly, politically piquant modernist cinema of the late 60s like that of Godard and Pier Paolo Pasolini.”
"In a story involving straight-out-of-a-fairytale evil sisters, hormone-shifting clownfish genes, and massive canine hallucinations, the tender, unexpected love story—mined from Diamantino’s capacity for compassion—turns out to be the beating heart of this Frankensteinian genre film."
“An instant cult classic.”
