  1. I didn't know much about this new Brazilian movie before I watched it, though the title "O Concurso" (something like "The Contest" in English) had already given me an idea. In a country where public contests take place all over the year, here we see four men from different states competing one another for a job as a Federal Judge – the most coveted position among all public contests throughout the country. In the story, three of the contenders travel to Rio to do the exams. The fourth competitor is from Rio and he meets the trio in front of the Hall of Justice, where he invites the others to hang around and enjoy the beach. Despite the upcoming hard test they will do, they go with the dweller and a series of misadventures start to happen; some are really funny, others not very much. I laughed at some moments but at the end, it seemed to me like so many other comedies, from Brazil or from any other place – nothing new, just a few laughs without compromise.
