"There are precious lines in the script written by Luisa Parnes, the standout revelation in screenwriting at this festival so far. She provides Tiago with concise yet emotionally rich dialogues in the narrative of the escapades of Judge Polidoro (José de Abreu, delivering his best performance on screen since the 1980s) as he supports the renovation of a strip club in Copacabana. It will be up to his estranged son, the musician Paulo (Danton), to assist his old man, especially in the battle against Alzheimer." (Rodrigo Fonseca)
