Cannes Film Festival's Critics' Week - Grand Prize

Diamantino, the world's premiere soccer star loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, and the hunt for the source of genius. 

“One of the year’s most singular debut” - Variety 

“Dazzling” The Guardian 

“A sweetly bizarre fantasy” Sight & Sound 

“Such a gem” - The Hollywood Reporter 

“Surreal” - Vanity Fair 

“A crazy pop UFO“ Le Monde

“Utterly bonkers, heartfelt and perfectly tied together “ Little White Lies

“Diamantino is like looking at today’s Europe through a funhouse mirror, and somehow seeing it more clearly as a result“ Indiewire
