Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Equal parts temper and tenderness, lust and incaution, "Heleno" is short on specifics but long on impression.
Fresh: Jose Henrique Fonseca's handsome black-and-white, impressionistic bio-drama goes very Raging Bull-ish, to tell a piece of the story of Heleno de Freitas, a Brazilian soccer star with matinee-idol charisma.
Rotten: You're stuck daydreaming about a far, far better movie.
Rotten: What you get instead of soccer is almost two hours of late-stage syphilis.
