Ahhhh! Two tickets to Rio, please.
5 October 2000 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Bossa Nova" is a fun and light hearted film about the romantic involvements of an ensemble of diverse but interconnected characters including one relationship hatched over the Internet. This charming little film features plenty of samabas, postcard panoramas of the Copacabana, and a 90 minute story which moves along quickly and will leave a smile on your face.
