Why watch this film?
There is no doubt that Marco Ricca is one of the greatest actors in Brazil. Just watch 'Canastra Suja', 'Hebe: A Estrela do Brasil' and 'Chatô'. But what a great role he plays in 'Lamento', an interesting feature film about a hotel manager (Ricca) entering a spiral of obsession and addiction. It all starts when a strange couple pays for a night in room 31. From then on, chaos ensues: noise, destruction, drug use, screaming and so on. But instead of calling the police, Ricca's character starts to go crazy with the couple while also trying to solve the complicated financial situation of the hotel - which also affects his marriage. It's a disturbing movie, which doesn't leave the viewer passive with what's happening, and which plays with the narrative, making small digressions that can confuse the most inattentive and disconnected audiences.
