A Forbidden Romance
10 February 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a small village in the interior of Minas Gerais, a young priest (Paulo José) arrives as the substituted for Priest Antônio, who is almost dead. There, he meets the old man Fortunato (Mário Lago), who is the local leader and lives with the young woman Mariana (Helena Ignez) as husband and wife. The priest decides to take the girl to the city of Diamantina, but they both fall in love for each other. In my opinion, the characters of this very slow movie are not well developed. The dilemma of the young priest is very clear, but the feelings of Mariana are very confused. I indeed expected much more of this story. In Brazil, this film is only available on cable television. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `O Padre e a Moça' (`The Priest and the Young Woman')
