Entertaining comedy about the battle of the sexes in this sensual city
8 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

HOW TO BE SINGLE IN RIO offers an insider's view of this sultry metropolis' single's scene. The characters are very realistic (take it from someone who's lived there), and the film narrates typical everyday folk's stories. Rio's beauty and sensuality cannot be denied, but they are not exploited here, as is the case with most films dealing with Rio. Neither are the usual, preachy, p.c. social commentaries. If anything, the in your face, that's the way it is, plot dares to be politicalyy incorect. Therein, perhaps, lies the movie greatest strength. The city's vibrance and stunning natural setting, nor the promiscuity Rio is equated with (all undeniable)are in no way exaggerated or glorified. If anything they are understated. This is a funny, entertaining film giving rare insight to the every day life of a bachelor in the fabled "cidade Maravilhosa." It doesn' deal with the life of the wretched characters in "Central Station" and "Pixote", nor the jetsetting life in Rio "pseudo-travelogues", the two extremes world cinema show us of Rio: the planet's only megalopolis (about 12 million habitants) which is also a tropical resort. A great place to be single; check it out!
