From worst to best | All movies about the romantic cults of Matheus Souza

Published

on

Awarded at the Festival do Rio and at the São Paulo International Film Festival in 2008 for his very first film, Matheus Souza is a promise kept. Since then, the 33-year-old filmmaker has worked diligently on his projects, directed and written five feature films. One of them, Me Feel Well With You, made his debut exclusively in the Amazon Prime Video catalog on May 20, 2021. This year again, the filmmaker is embarking on Globo Filmes, The Last Party, shot in Portugal.

In case you still don’t know the work of the young Brazilian director, screenwriter, actor, composer and producer, we have created a leaderboard to help you. In addition to directing five films, Matheus Souza is also responsible for the screenplay for Confessions of Adolescents (2013), by Daniel Filho; Intimacy Among Strangers (2018), by José Alvarenga; and Eduardo e Mônica, by René Sampaio, still without date of creation. He also collaborated on the Globoplay series Where’s My Heart (2020); We sell Chairs (2010), from Multishow, and in the Amor e Sexo program, from Globo.

Despite an important job only as a screenwriter, we have decided to exclude them from the ranking for now, as we are evaluating the direction of the young professional. Although the list follows the judgment of the author of this article, we will be sharing the ratings given by the public on opinion aggregation platforms: IMDB (maximum score 10) and Filmow (maximum score 5). Let’s go to the list?

5. Tamo Junto (2016)

IMDB: 5.7 (131 votes) – Filmow: 2.7 (397 votes)

Even the special appearances of Fábio Porchat, Antonio Tabet and Augusto Madeira do not save the romantic comedy. With a mix of attempted homage to classics of American cinema, added to an irritating introspective character, more terrible performances, Tamo Junto turns on him. With the premise of a boy enjoying the life of a bachelor, the film becomes a muddled romance between friends entitled to a marriage interruption scene, in a shameful mix from The First Night of a Man (1967) and Everything To Be With Him (2002).

4. I have no idea what I’m doing with my life (2012)

IMDB: 5.6 (405 votes) – Filmow: 3.0 (6,419 votes)

In his second feature film, Matheus Souza presents Clara (Clarice Falcão), a young woman in crisis, with her next steps. She has a boyfriend whom she dislikes, attends medical school due to pressure from her family, but has been absent from class to think about a bowling alley and meet family members in search of answers . The huge title is scary, the dramatic performance of Clarice Falcão leaves something to be desired, but the soundtrack composed by Tiê, Silva, Rodrigo Amarante, Marcelo Camelo and Clarice herself is food and the reflections gently touch the soul.

3. I feel good with you (2021)

IMDB: 8.0 (9 votes) – Filmow: 3.2 (18 votes)

Released a few days ago on Amazon Prime Video, the film has already taken the podium with five great relationship stories during quarantine. The big highlight of the production is in the aesthetics, the lighting and the artistic composition, of course, that the script and the staging is good, as well as the performances, a highlight for Manu Gavassi and Richard Abelha. It’s impossible not to smile at some point and not get carried away by the conversations and lockdown dramas of the young Brazilian middle class.

2. Ana and Vitória (2018)

IMDB: 6.5 (545 votes) – Filmow: 3.2 (3,360 votes)

Was it a biopic or a pre-release album? In case of doubt, the production fictionalizes the story of the meeting between singers Ana Caetano and Vitória Falcão, in their hometown of Araguaína, Tocantins, and the resounding success of the duo in Brazil. However, Rio de Janeiro is the scene of the greatest cases and loves of two friends and artists. Falling in love, they compose, sing and enchant us with the melodic voice, highlighting the songs Ai, amor and Outrória.

1. Only the end (2008)

IMDB: 6.9 (870 votes) – Filmow: 3.7 (7,338 votes)

Compared to Before Link (1995), by Richard Linklater, for the long dialogues between two characters, with only a few extras, like Marcelo Adnet, Just the End is a small masterpiece. In the plot, a girl (Erika Mader) decides to abandon her boyfriend Tom (Gregório Duvivier) and flee to an unknown location. Before leaving, she decides to meet him, but they only have an hour to take a fun look at their relationship. Simple, beautiful, poetic and with Los Hermanos on the soundtrack.
