A Young Man in Existentialistic Crisis Destroying His Relationship
19 November 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Marcelo (Paulo José) is a student in existentialistic crisis. He questions the reason of life, and lost the interest for everything but sex. He goes to school, but does not study, he does not work, he does not have any place to live, and he does not have any asset. He has two sisters, one of them married and the other living with a girlfriend in a small apartment. His family seems to be split since his parents died. His fragility attracts the women, but he is just interested in sex, without a relationship. His behavior drags her lovers down, and Marcelo ends the story alone, in a fetal position.

Walter Hugo Khouri was one of the greatest Brazilian directors. His movies are normally very introspective, with characters questioning life. The distributor Cinemagia has just released 'As Amorosas' on DVD. Although being an expensive DVD, the film has not been restored. Therefore, the quality of image and sound are terrible. A shame indeed! This 1968 film has the participation of the Brazilian band 'Os Mutantes', one of the most important groups of the seventies in Brazil. It would be a great pleasure having the chance to see Rita Lee, Arnaldo e Sérgio Baptista in a restored DVD. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "As Amorosas" ("The Loving Women")
