Diamantino casts a singularly surreal eye on an ambitious array of subjects, emerging with a cinematic experience as inscrutable as it is unforgettable.
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.
