Biografilm Europe

(Francia / 2018 / 92’)

An amazing film directed by Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt that delighted the International Critics' Week at the Cannes Film Festival 2018. Diamantino is famous all around the world as a soccer champion. He is a Cristiano Ronaldo, an unstoppable football’s genius. Until one day, a sad one, all his brilliance disappears. Among strange events, mystical visions, giant dogs and pastel kitsch shapes, Diamantino looks like a an eccentric comedy but it reflects about contemporary conflicts: from the celebrity cult to the rising of delirious anti-european thoughts and xenophobic politics.
