Exclusive: Nanda Costa, Roberta Rodrigues star in Rio Carnival rom-com.

Rio-based Total Entertainment is in post-production on Rio Carnival romantic comedy Apaixonados, produced with local Disney label Miravista.

Budgeted at $1.5m (R$6m), Apaixonados was partially shot during the last Carnival, in February, capturing images of the parade of Grande Rio, one of the top samba schools in the Brazlian city.

Directed by Paulo Fontenelle, known for comedies Diva a Dois (2015) and Se Puder… Dirija (2013), the film portrays three love stories born during Carnival in Rio.

The cast includes City of God actress Roberta Rodrigues and Nanda Costa (Rat Fever).

Costa portrays a samba school flag bearer who is torn between her responsibility to parade during Carnival and concern for her ailing father (Roberto Bomfim), whom she takes to hospital only to fall in love with a doctor (Raphael Vianna).

Rodrigues plays a hairdresser from the favelas who meets a rich man (John Baldesserini) during a Carnival »
