Garrincha: Estrela Solitária Reviews:

I watched this a long time ago so my perception of this movie may not be so analytic as I tend to do in another reviews but what I do remember of "Garrincha - Estrela Solitária" was a great picture, somewhat nice but very limited considered how large Garrincha was and is in Brazilian culture.Here's one of the most distinctive soccer users of all time (played by André Gonçalves) considered one of the best of Brazil (and those who saw it during 1958 and 1962's Globe Cups know how nice he was), known as 'The Angel with Bent Legs', with unequaled dribbling skills and moves. But the film haven't showed us that neither his historical matches in the Globe Cups. So how come a film about a soccer user doesn't detail scenes of him playing? Large mistake! There's a several scenes but they never satisfy our hunger for knowing how brilliant the boy was on the field. Instead, all we have is a detailed view on his troubled personal life, his marriage with singer Elza Soares (Taís Araújo), his drinking issues that soon caused his death by the age of 49. His legacy wasn't well translated to the screen, only the terrible parts were. What is quite shameful or a tiny bit trivial is the amount of time spent in showing his sexual life (yeah, I know there was lots of rumors about the size of his intimate parts, and things like that but the movie never goes that far in showing such). What we receive is a several dramas and lots of sex but almost nothing of his talents on camp. Considering the figure's stature and how symbolic Garrincha was and also considering that this movie was adapted from Ruy Castro's book, which I don't even need to read to tell it's nice because the creator is an impeccable and influential person in Brazilian journalism, this movie should have been so much better.Performances are good; the recreating of territories and happenings are okay and adding the fact biographical movies are rare to be made, this movie gets my approval, I liked it despite letting the most necessary trouble on the side. 6/10
