Rio Eu Te Amo – On “Rio, I Love You”

The whole concept of dedicating a bunch of shorts to one particular city is amazing, It goes beyond the saying that previous attempts such as “Paris, Je t`aime” or “New York, I love you” were successful in reflecting the whole diversity and plurality of cultures lay in one city to some extent. But as much the idea is humane and beautiful, the whole joyous and entertaining ensemble of the movie product result in something not that brilliant, and work not as much as a shiny postcard.

In this case, despite the love and affection they gave to the miraculous city of Rio, in “Rio, Eu Te Amo” the same rules apply and the result is just the same, Exceptions for the episodes of Nadine Labaki, Guillermo Arriaga & the brazillian genius José Padilha.
