Last night i went to "Queer Lisboa 19" and i saw (unfortunately) this film. These film reveals two things, the poverty of that festival and how poor is the idea of queer cinema. If queer is only a type of history with two men or women where the aesthetics? I don't need to see homosexual behavior in a John Waters or Fassbinder's film too understand that is queer. Queer or not (and i think is not), is just a bad movie.
A beautifully composed mood piece that aims to be a complex and introspective story, comes short of being an half-empty little curiosity. A strong and much needed turmoil arrives in it's third act and makes it worth the watch.
Una película dividida en 3 partes casi de forma accidentada. "Praia do futuro" tiene una 1ra parte atractiva. Es un romance a propósito de un luto. Lo que parecía tejer la obsesión frente a lo ausente, se frustra en su 2da parte. Aquí la central es otra. Ese individuo que no se siente encajado a un contexto. Su final lo contradice. Ya en la 3ra parte, es el reclamo del pasado. En las 3 partes lo ausente es el centro.
