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

Weird Movie
21 May 2005 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie recently and although it is not a great movie, I just couldn't change the channel. Dominique's acting is really good, the guys are less than convincing but the movie still managed to keep my attention for an hour and something. The plot is not common, I mean how often do you find a movie were the characters are scared of themselves and of all the rest?, and the conflict is actually very intriguing, it really got me thinking what would I do in such a situation. It is not one of those movies easy to watch, and perhaps many people won't like it but I found it very interesting. To one of the comments that said that the "Mexican" guy wasn't good looking I would like to say two things: a) He was Brazilian. Brazilian, not Mexican. It is pretty different. and b)handsome guys do not make a movie interesting or worth watching. If you want to see a different movie, that might not be very normal you should watch this one.
