Diamantino

Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt imagine a famous football player absolutely everybody lusts after. An outlandish, ingenuous and funny comedy on the world of football and gigantic long-haired dogs that portrays the nation in dire need of heroes.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Screen International by Allan Hunter

You have to admire the sheer giddy enthusiasm of filmmaking friends who are fizzing with ideas and able to make a modest budget stretch a long way. The film has a certain visual allure in its gaudy colours and low-budget special-effects. Yet you also long for them to put all those energies into a more focused, far funnier project.

The Hollywood Reporter by Boyd van Hoeij

It’s an utter delight to see that theoretical academic musings on gender, love, sexuality and politics can be packaged and reflected upon in such a jocular and constantly entertaining way.

IndieWire by David Ehrlich

Part B-movie spoof, part handcrafted satire, and always driven by a genuine vision for a better tomorrow, Diamantino is like looking at today’s Europe through a funhouse mirror, and somehow seeing it more clearly as a result.

Variety by Guy Lodge

Part loopily queer sci-fi thriller, part faux-naive political rallying cry, glued together with candyfloss clouds of romantic reverie, it’s a film best seen with as little forewarning as possible: To go in blind is to be carried along by its irrational tumble of events as blissfully and buoyantly as its empty-headed soccer-star protagonist.
