Storyline

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).

2 January 2003 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

That is a good example of a creative screenplay for a Brazilian movie, based not on poverty , ecology or violence. It could be made not only in Brazil, but anywhere. That is about the most favorite theme of Cinema: love. In its perspective, sometimes ironic and hilarious, the idea is that the real life never looks like a fairy tale, but the real love exists. However, the technical conditions, specifically the sound and editing is fair away from Hollywood...
