Luiza is an architect who just got out of a ruined relationship. Gabriel is a biologist and he has finished a long-term marriage with divorce. When they both meet, chances that they can do well together are not that big. But they will try to, even if their friends Barata (a convict bachelor totally skeptical when it comes to love) and Marta (a mathematic analyst who wishes that human relations were just as exact as numbers are).

Don't listen to the previous "reviewer" - decide for yourself
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I bought the DVD and have watched it many times. It's a universal statement about the pointlessness of human relationships when they're based almost entirely on physical attraction and the "crush" factor, presented in a very clever and often humorous way, although the film definitely has its dark side. The two secondary characters, played by Tony Ramos and Mônica Torres, are very, very funny...Ramos with his macho/pseudo-biological observations and Mônica with her mathematical/statistical obsession.
The music is brilliant, too. Ed Motta has written some lovely things for it, and it's wonderful to hear Nana Caymmi.
Sorry to say, but the previous reviewer missed the point entirely. Not to mention the fact that anyone who has the slightest comprehension of carioca culture would never call the dialog "unconvincing."
