Fifth about The Seventh


Alemão: solid, competent action film. At its center is a well-told story (with undertones of some Howard Hawks’ westerns, and making good use of a MacGuffin), that gives time to José Eduardo Belmonte differentiate the characters and explore the setting. The cast is generally solid, with Caio Blat, Milhem Cortaz and Otávio Müller the highlights (they also have the meatier roles). Well-crafted, with good camerawork by Alexandre Ramos and electric editing. The music, however, is a bit heavy-handed at times (even if the references to Morricone and Bacalov are, actually, inspired.)
