Storyline

Based on a famous autobiography, this film tells of teenage angst, as lived in the miserable lower middle class Rio bedroom suburbs, by 15 year-old Eliane. To boot, she comes from a dysfunctional family. Her mother is particularly neurotic and bitter, at odds with virtually everything her daughter does. The film strives to be a realistic and sensitive portrayal of human relationships in one of Brazil's poorest urban landscapes. Written by ElianeG

Landmark Brazilian working-class family drama
17 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

A film worth seeing, for many reasons. It is an excellent working class drama, showing a side of Brazil not always shown. And it features outstanding performers by now veteran actresses Marieta Severo (CARLOTA JOAQUINA, PRINCESS OF BRAZIL), and the Cannes Best Actress-Award winning Fernanda Torres, daughter of the now famous Montenegro (CENTRAL STATION). The soundtrack boasts some of Brazil's best pop music of the 80's also. A good choice.
