Trivia

The film cast includes two actors later turned directors: Norma Bengell and Guilherme Fontes. Both artists were involved in controversies in the 1990's when they were about to release their films as directors with both being sued by the Ministry for the Culture and other entities that claimed a misuse of funds provided for the movies. Bengell had problems with O Guarani (1997) while Fontes spent two decades trying to make Chatô - The King of Brazil (2015). See more »

Well made but couldn't bring myself to care
28 December 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Competently done, well acted and well scored drama that nevertheless fails to fully engage due to a less than resonating storyline. There are interesting parallels between the personal and political aspects -- two nationalities/two girlfriends, despotic regime/despotic father -- but these parallels are not explored and it is up to the viewer to elaborate on them. Guilherme Fontes delivers a correct performance but who shines is undoubtedly Júlia Lemmertz as the refugee cousin. Today the film has the added interest of bringing back the eighties for those who lived during that time, and, for those who didn't, it must be interesting to compare both periods in terms of music style, clothing, general attitudes, etc.
