CGiii Comment

Gargantuan fluffy puppies and footballers...not something you see every day!

Tighten your jockstraps...because, Diamantino is one-of-a-kind and one-helluva-ride. great big piss-take on the beautiful game!

John Lennon once said that The Beatles were bigger than Jesus Christ...if he hadn't delivered a rather hasty and emphatic apology..his & Co's careers might have irreversibly slumped. How times have changed!

Football is the new religion [well, to be honest, in modern has always been more popular and evoked more passion than that stuffy old religious guff]. This [usually male] adoration for an over-paid, ball-kicking [male] goon has always been a cause of great amusement and confusion [to gay men]. Straight men lusting over a bunch of men in shorts...if they had the many do you think would allow [and love] being buggered by their ball-kicking's all so damn gay! is this film! Well, not entirely...this footballer swings both ways in the 'biblical sense'...because, he's a goddamn virgin! Hysterical.

Carloto Cotta does a ball-kicking-beauty-with-no-brains to a tee...he's a fairy-tale Prince Charming, complete with two evil money-grabbing-cum-laundering sisters. He's trusting and loving and caring and adorably stupid. He makes hearts melt and straight willies stiff!

Gabriel Abrantes & Daniel Schmidt have thrown [absolute] madness at the screen...and, the clever thing's both scalding and scathing...nothing quite like an insult when it's all packaged with glitter and bows. - most definitely - will go over the ball-kicking fans' heads...but, by god, did these filmmakers take aim? They sure did...and shot it straight right into the back of the net!

Brilliant...and, chilling [even with fluffy puppies]!

Diamantino, the world's premiere soccer star loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and the hunt for the source of genius.
