Womanizer suddenly finds a woman who makes him change the way he looks at women. He falls in love, and believes she is in fact all women in one. Because of that, he has to face an important decision: to go on with his old life or embrace this special relationship and become a monogamous man. Written by
Talented play writer, director and actor, Domingos de Oliveira has made a few films since this one and still doing, always dealing with his main theme, love and its implications. Considered by some viewers the Brazilian Woody Allen, no other Brazilian film director has this funny, inventive and sensitive look at day-by-day romantic comedy situations as Domingos does.
"Todas as Mulheres do Mundo" is an ode to women. The story of a man with many flirts, suddenly caught by love. Since then, he is going to face the delights of monogamy and suffer all the pain and doubts that love itself demands, in order to survive and grow stronger, with humor, sensibility and great actors (highlighting the performances of Paulo José, Leila Diniz and Flávio Migliaccio). Domingos and his crew can extract each light of beauty that Leila Diniz reflects. This is a true masterpiece of the "Cinema Novo" era, an icon of Brazilian cinema.
