O Patio Das Cantigas

I watched the remake of the 1942 classic today. Why? Why did I bother? As far as I can tell, it’s not as funny and not as easy to understand as the original. If you’re considering it, save your money and watch the real thing on Youtube.

The DVD doesn’t have Portuguese subtitles, only English ones. The youtube video has Portuguese subtitles but (my sources inform me) they’re not very accurate. It looked like a much better film though: Better acting, not trying as hard, and they talk at a more manageable pace. I’ll do it properly next time.
