    The eponymous Portuguese football star in Diamantino is essentially a child, his brain empty of anything that would interfere with his zen-like mastery of the sport (cue giant fluffy puppies - it's gonna get weirder before it's over, folks - and everyone wants a piece of him. His evil twin sisters, law enforcement looking for his hidden riches, a fascist government parodying both Brexit and MAGA, and even a geneticist looking to reproduce his magic. Over the course of this already insane story, a secret agent (Cleo Tavares, the real star here, she's awesome) will pose as his adopted refugee son and perhaps fall under the charm of his innocence and naivete. Part political satire, part taboo (but somehow charming) love story, part black comedy, part gonzo science-fiction tale, Diamantino impresses by sheer originality. The climax is a bit abrupt, but I think that's a feeling born of my wanting the film to be longer. And I can't exactly raise a penalty flag on that. 2 years 11 months ago

    I watched part of Roman Holiday on TCM before watching this and despite them being EXTREMELY different movies there were an odd amount of similarities:

    Also both movies are great and I recommend them
