Smoking/No Smoking
Smoking/No Smoking
“As “Smoking / No Smoking” opens its range of options, the viewer is faced with the question of choice. Each segment is interrupted by a card with the inscription: “Or else …”.
Thereafter, the film starts to show what would have happened if one character had chosen this path, and not another.
The second surprise comes from, suddenly, the viewer realizing (whoever embarks on the trip, of course) that he spent almost five hours with his eyes glued to the screen, seeing and living a theater of possible destinations that invariably end five years later, in the cemetery behind the local church”.INÁCIO ARAUJO
