Wacky Ronaldo makes his presence felt at Cannes
Diamantino's wacky story follows a preening metrosexual goal machine with a fondness for displaying his waxed torso at every possible occasion
A surreal comedy that features a superstar footballer bearing a striking resemblance to Cristiano Ronaldo has become the surprise sensation of the Cannes film festival.
Diamantino's wacky story follows a preening metrosexual goal machine with a fondness for displaying his waxed torso at every possible occasion. But the eponymous hero's life falls apart when he misses a penalty in the World Cup final for Portugal on the same night his father dies. Having lost his killer touch, his career ends in disgrace.
The movie's American co-director Daniel Schmidt said it was the underlying innocence of the Ronaldo character that holds the mad romp together.
