Garrincha – Lonely Star. Starred by André Gonçalves, as Garrincha, and Taís Araújo, as Elza Soares, the film portrays Manoel Garrincha’s life, one of the greatest icons of Brazilian football, known as “devil with bent legs”: Brazilian by birth, son of indigenous parents and a man of humble origins. Despite the experts’ opinion on his bent legs, the player shone in the spotlight during The 1962 World Cup, showing his creative skills and turning the match into a spectacle.

The film traces his life through the memories recounted by his wives, his friends and the journalists who knew him. It is divided into parts, each one revealing the stories told by Nair and Elza Soares, ex-wifes; Sandro Moreira, journalist and friend, who had been at his side ever since his tryout for Botafogo; and Nilton Santos, friend and player for Botafogo. Even though the film had a great potential, unfortunately it leaves something to be desired.
The film’s pace and sequences don’t give the viewer any time to be involved or moved by the complex personality of the athlete. André Gonçalves plays the renowned footballer during three decades of his life, but he does so without any physical change.
The image of the former player in a Samba School parade – in a decadent, alcoholic stage – did not convince at all, since the film production apparently decided not to use any makeup and/or costumes. The scenography is mediocre and the costume design is odd, to say the least. Taís Araújo’s performance, on the other hand, is almost enough to salvage the film, in the role of Elza Soares. The actress portrayed with perfection the irreverent personality of the singer as well as the unique gestures she does when she sings, in an outstanding body language performance.
Anyway, such a phenomenal figure as Garrincha certainly deserves a film with better production and script. This post is also available in: Portuguese (Brazil).
