Fifth about The Seventh

Dente por Dente

Dente por Dente: Pedro Arantes and Júlio Taubkin’s thriller has the basis of a good story, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that its conclusion was rushed; the film has a very short runtime and could have used some more time to infuse some meat into the plot. It’s a pity because the film certainly creates an uneasy mood and the mix of mystery and social commentary is interesting; the addition of a supernatural element just makes the proceedings murkier. Juliano Cazarré, as the over-his-head protagonist, is OK, but his character suffers from a lack of development and so does the performance. Supporting performances generally have the same issues. The work of the director of photography Bruno Tiezzi helps a lot to set the mood, as does the musical score, by Mowg.
