Strong as it could be
15 April 2003 | by (Campina Grande, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect to see such a good movie when I rented it some time ago. I thought it would be about a couple and their love. All that made me got this video was the fact that it's Brazilian, like I am. But it really surprised me. The central theme is powerful: a young couple goes to a house in the countryside where they discuss their problems in a furious, animal way. The way they speak (and scream) and the things they say is kind of poetic. Their vocabulary goes beyond popular Portuguese and the actors move as they were in theatre. What differentiates this movie from many others of its genre is that after and before those arguments, they have hot sex. It's all shown openly, what makes this film just one step away from adult movies. The two stars, Alexandres Borges and Julia Lemmertz are married, what probably made their performances much easier.

My rate 7/10
