This movie was harder to find than the movie Under The Skin, my brother GC was the one who found out about it and who wanted to watch it and who told me about the trailer for it; and it took months or longer until I finally found it.
We finally finished watching it last night, and the movie was better than we had expected, but it was definitely longer than it should have been.
Even though this movie was longer than it should have been and not as much happened or was explained as we had hoped, we did not hate it or think that it wasted our time.
The special effects and the acting, except for some of the children, and the directing was surprisingly good for a lower budget film.
This is possibly the most unique werewolf movie that we have seen, it is a werewolf fantasy romance horror part musical film in Brazilian Portuguese, with a few things that I have probably not seen before in a werewolf movie.
This movie had a slower pacing with an interesting environment/feeling to it that was slightly surrealistic at times, which is where the fantasy comes in I assume, so it is certainly unique.
In a way this movie somewhat reminds me of the movie Under The Skin, there are some things that I like better about that movie, but I might like this movie better overall than Under The Skin.
