Movie Info

Diamantino (Carloto Cotta), the world's premiere soccer star, loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, he sets out on a delirious odyssey -- in which he must confront neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and abuse at the hands of his evil twin sisters -- all part of a deranged hunt for the source of genius.

Critic Reviews for Diamantino

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (14)

It's too cannily plotted and self-aware to achieve the sort of gonzo energy one associates with genuine cult items.

"Diamantino" is one of those movies that looks super fun to make but is mind-numbing to actually watch.

June 27, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

"Diamantino" is no less committed to these ideas than it is to its own uneven, unforgettable lunacy.

June 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The whole enterprise has a charm to it and it certainly is never boring. Bewildering, maybe, but never boring.

May 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It sizzles with a comic energy rare for a movie with such blunt and weighty political commentary.

Top Critic

As these two characters, Cotta and Tavares make an unusually appealing odd couple - and the most idiosyncratic rooting interests the movies have served up this year.
