The Cinematheque to Screen Celebrated ‘Diamantino’ Film This Week

The GOODS from The Cinematheque

Vancouver, BC | The Cinematheque presents Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s delightfully deranged Diamantino (2018), one of the wackiest, wonkiest, and most inspired debut features in recent memory.

This satire of modern-day Europe won the Grand Prix at Cannes’ Critics’ Week and was a 2018 festival favourite. A candy-coated genre mashup that centres on Portuguese soccer superstar Diamantino (Carloto Cotta), a loveable, dimwitted daddy’s boy who attributes his athletic genius to seeing dinosaur-sized “fluffy puppies” on the pitch. When he learns of Europe’s refugee crisis, the colossally cute canines disappear and his footie career crumbles.

To reveal much more would do a disservice to the ludicrous inner logic of this silly-veiled smart movie — but trust, by closing credits, Brexit-like EU separatism, sci-fi experimentation, and breasts will have played prominent parts.
