Critics reviews

[Oliveira’s scaled-down] approach pays off in The Uncertainty Principle (O Principio da incerteza, 2002), where the flatness counterpoints the mischief of a narrative that is effectively a high-society soap, the measured tone giving way to an unexpected climax as a gang of devil-masked intruders executes a firebomb attack on a nightclub.
