Diamantino

Crew
Directed by Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt


Diamantino, the world’s premiere soccer star (played by Carloto Cotta) loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets out on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, abuse at the hands of his evil twin sisters, and a deranged hunt for the source of genius. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes Critics' Week.

Reviews

“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.”

“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.”
