Storyline

In Rio de Janeiro, Gloria is an ambitious young woman, whose father is bankrupted. When the son of his business partner, Marcos, arrives in Rio, her father asks Gloria to have a trip with him in their boat Boa Vida. Gloria, her boyfriend Danny and their common friend Jeff get Marcos in his hotel and they go to Angra dos Reis. While in the sea, they drink Caipirinha and beer, and Gloria flirts with the wealthy Marcos. The jealous Danny sees they kissing each other, throws Marcos in the water with a lifebuoy and drives the boat to a distant island to scare Marcos. However, they have a problem with the propellers and when they return to the spot, they do not find Marcos anymore. Afraid of the consequences of his possible drowning, they discuss alibis and how to resolve the situation, shattering their relationship in an environment of high-tension and selfishness. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I thought this was an awesome movie.
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie several years ago and I have been trying to find the name of it since. I love movies about seas, oceans, islands and boats. I found this movie very entertaining so much that I wish to buy it. As far as I'm concerned, it is a little like "The Beach", only different circumstances of course. If you like ironic thrillers containing oceans, and boats, I highly recommend this movie. Something like this has happened and will continue. I would also compare it to deep water of recent release. I'll admit that it has been some years since I've seen it but obviously it made an impact on me. I cannot comment on cinematography other than I remember the beautiful water where it was filmed and of course the beautiful girl. As far as the ending, I think it makes the whole movie worth watching. Hope you enjoy, I certainly did.
