Balas & Bolinhos Reviews:

This film is based in Portuguese myths. Some tell that the film is larger than it could be, but it is not. The storyline should be said in mere 10 minutes, but the another 52 are criticizing Portuguese community, showing us the life of the lowest-middle layer of social groups in a method fully exaggerated and making lots of parodies like the vehicle f****** scene, the "flour guy", the guy fully drugged (that dude would be dead at this time...), the 2000$ stage (hylarious) and the digging of the weapons scene. Instead of being a film with 10 mins saying the story, Luís Ismael made a film where us all should laugh and test someway to understand those guys' life (or not...). The second film had much more dedication and is method better than the first in cinematography terms, but the first is and will everytime be a myth film to us Portuguese teenagers.


I'm highly biased and giving random stars from 0 to 10 is method too subjective. But I loved this movie despite not being able to understand much of what they tell - even if my mother language is Portuguese (from Brazil).The scenes and photography are well chosen, despite the limited crew. They had nobody dedicated for this (or any off screen job, on the credits) and, yet, did a magnificent job as a side job there.The camera movement and rhythm is just in time. It does receive slow sometimes, but it is apparently all on purpose because the slowness is spread in moments across all the movie.I heard their budget was around €1500. Now, that's even more amazing. It means each actor there were doing it for free. Sure, all amateurs, but enjoyable and entertaining never the less. Have you tried gathering folks for filming? Just test it.I never thought it was possible to achieve a long movie with such a weak budget in such a country with no culture for it. Amazing. And really well accomplished feat.I sure enjoyed watching it, and I may even watch again eventually. Yes, I think it has enough value for re-watching.True, the movie doesn't stand too nice by itself, as a storyline telling. But, again, it's still quite enjoyable. I also love how the dialogs don't really matter, as the photos speak for themselves. That's how films could be done, in my humble opinion. Not soundless, but the video gotta everytime speak for itself.


Balas&Bolinhos is one of those films that it's nice to watch when you've got nothing better to do... in this case, for about an hour. The film is fun, well thought out, but its main trouble is that it should be done in about half the time and say the same story. The characters create rambling after rambling, which, although really funny (especially if you know Portuguese society) don't add much to the story. It does have a lot of swearing, no doubt, but I felt it was more part of the characters' characterizations and not really an attempt to be funny. Nice highlights in the film contain the junkie Bino (very funny, in spite of not telling much more than "Yo!") and the Pulp Fiction parody near the end.
