A Very Aggressive Discussion Between Lovers
27 December 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Alexandre Borges and Júlia Lemmertz are lovers. He lives like an eremite, isolated in a country house with a small creation of rabbits, and she is a journalist. The story begins with them meeting each other and without any words, going to a bedroom and having hot and almost explicit sex. On the next day, while having breakfast, he notes that ants have made a hole in his live fence. He poisons them and begin a very aggressive discussion with her. The analogy between the hole in the life fence and the `opening' the character of Júlia Lemmertz in doing in his private life is the trigger for the discussion. She lives the place, but in the night she is back to him. I myself did not like this movie. The excessive sex in the beginning, and the theatrical discussion along most part of the story are very boring. Nobody uses the vocabulary or the construction of the sentences like the central pair do along a hot discussion. The discussion is too much artificial for my taste. In a play of a theater, this text may work, but in a film, it does not. The DVD is excellent, containing many additional matters. Alexandre Borges and Júlia Lemmertz are married in real life, but they explain in the DVD that the sperm scene was made using a special liquid injected in a syringe. My vote is four.
