Friendly Beast ★★★½

The first 45 minutes are very promising but then the film ends up taking a not so interesting turn. I'm not saying it's bad, but it could have been better, no doubt.
The performances are generally competent, especially Luciana Paes and Irandhir Santos. Incidentally, Irandhir Santos doesn't even need a lot of screen time to shine ...
Finally, I have to mention that the low sound of the dialogues also impaired my experience because I did not always understand what was said. It was the first time that it happened to me so much with a Brazilian film. I do not agree when some Brazilians say that their cinema always has poor sound quality ... I have seen very competent Brazilian films in this regard.
