Delightful Carioca Romance
12 October 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Av. Prado Jr., an avenue in the boundary of Leme and Copacabana beaches, the middle-age filmmaker Bruno has sexual myths with a fourteen years old teenager that he sees walking along the streets of Copacabana. He does not have any information about the girl, and his friends gave the nickname of "Fulaninha" (Mariana de Moraes) (obs: "Fulaninha" means "Little Jane Doe") to her. His best friends are Canela (Roberto Bonfim), who produces porno-movies with his partner Sulamita (Zaira Zambelli); Emílio (Flávio São Thiago), a drunken lawyer who has never worked in his life; and Jardel (José de Abreu), an unemployed real state agent, who is married with a wealthy woman. The group meets in the "Bar do Camarão", for drinks and idle talk. Bruno meets Rose (Kátia D'Ángelo), the former lover of a smuggler, and without knowing that she is the mother of Fulaninha, they fall in love for each other.

"Fulaninha" is a delightful Carioca romance, based on the self-biography of David Neves. I saw a bad review in a Brazilian Movie Guide, but I decided to see this movie anyway. I found a movie with the spirit of the natives of Rio de Janeiro, our habits, with a beautiful title song sang by Paulinho da Viola, and a homage to the cinema, with footages of Otto Preminger's "Bonjour Tristesse" and "Luz del Fuego". The actress Mariana de Moraes if the granddaughter of the great Brazilian poet Vinícius de Moraes. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Fulaninha" ("Little Jane Doe")
