User review:

It´s a great portrait of a real problem that´s common in that region, Oporto, specially in that specific area, Ribeira, were the people are very poor. The script is great and the performances of Saúl (Jaime) and Fernanda Serrano (Marta, Jaime´s mother) are very nice. She did a very good job, not the one we get used to seeing on TV. The movie is very well edited and the music, particularly Rui Veloso song, fits like a glove. I gave 7 to António-Pedro Vasconcelos’s “Jaime”.

Director: António-Pedro Vasconcelos
Writers: Carlos Saboga, António-Pedro Vasconcelos

    This is a movie that’s hard to review without spoilers but I’ll do the best I can. Ultimately, what it all boils down to is that this movie is about the illegal child labor of kids with poor families and the dangers and sadness involved. Jaime skips school everyday and works to improve his life and to save up enough money to buy his father’s motor bike back and get his parents back together. His mother had divorced his father because he lost his bike and job. His mother also prostitutes herself to make enough money to live on. His father whom he so loves is a very sad man, divorced from Jaime’s mother whom he still loves and unemployed with no transportation. This movie is just full of so much gloom that I couldn’t enjoy it. It reminds us that there are people, including children, who have to work laborious jobs they hate just to make ends meat.
