Kill Me Please
Directed by Anita Rocha da Silveira
Bia, Michele, Mariana and Renata are a clique of affluent high school girls. They waste away their days wandering the fields between the vertigo-inducing high rises in Barra da Tijuca, an affluent new neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. Both privileged and abandoned by busy parents, the girls spend most of their time together. When a wave of murders hits their neighborhood, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the victims -- breaking down the lines separating life, death and desire.

Wow, what a bummer....this had the potential to be very but was screwed up by the writer and director. So unbelievably anti-climatic at the end. And it didn't help that it didn't make any sense. The acting was very good, but they were anchored by a bad script. The best thing about this film was looking at those beautiful girls from Portugal. So very yummy. That's it though. Nothing was solved or answered at the end. It's amazing how a bad ending can blow an entire film.
(Got cut off from below) there’s an awful lot of extended kissing shots that can get kind of uncomfortable. Pretty sure that’s the point though.
Imagine the Portuguese version of a Sofia Coppola movie. If that speaks to you in any way you’ll be fine. I dug it, and agree that the teen actresses were amazing. Oh, and be warned
Terribly uneven. Extremely slow especially in the beginning when the director should aim to get the audience involved. I slogged through it as I have spent many hours in my youth watching unsuccessful art films. With better editing would have been half way interesting. Right now looks like film school exercise.
I also tried. And I also didn't succeed. It's seriously bad.
