An Irregular Remake of a Brazilian Underground Classic Movie
24 June 2005 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, after an altercation with his father and mother, the young man Bebeto (Alexandre Frota) kills his family and goes to the movie theater. He impassively watches four weird short stories. The first one is about a wealthy woman, Márcia (Claudia Raia), bored with her marriage, who decides to spend alone a couple of days in her house in Petrópolis. When her best friend Renata (Louise Cardoso) unexpectedly arrives to stay with her, they get drunk and a tragedy is announced. The second one is about a looser that arrives home upset and drunk and kills his family. The third one is about a tragic lesbian repressed relationship. The last one is about a man addicted in stealing women's underwear.

"Matou a Família e Foi ao Cinema" is a remake of a Brazilian underground classic of 1967 of Júlio Bressane with the same title. I have never had the chance to watch the original version, but the 1991 is very irregular, having some good points, but also very weak and silly parts, like for example the man addicted in stealing women's underwear. Another negative aspect is the indecision of Neville de Almeida between a heavy drama or a dark humor. In the end, none of the foregoing genres works well. The movie explores too much the body of Claudia Raia, who was in evidence in 1991. In 2005, we see that she was indeed too fat and with cellulite for the present standards of beauty and aesthetic. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Matou a Família e Foi ao Cinema" ("Killed the Family and Went to the Movie Theater")
