The best and latest from the Fernandas
11 July 2000 | by (Rio and Florida) – See all my reviews

OK. One Fernanda catches attention. Two almost guarantees a Brazilian hit (and a good film, as proven in their previous collaboration TREASON (1998). But three (with Fernanda Torres playing twins) may be too much. Besides, some people may be getting sick of this Fernanda-mania. Well, even someone who went in to see it with a cynical inclination as I did, admits that this daughter/mother team have a great thing going. This is their best collaboration yet. Actually, only their second one. Montenegro had a very small part in the Torres starring FOUR DAYS IN SEPTEMBER, but not as her mother, and again a bit part at best. And in reality, the collaboration is only icing on the cake. They are individually captivating, no added family chemistry needed. Well, better late than never. The two always did lead totally different careers, until things changed a couple of years ago with CENTRAL STATION. It's great for us that the mother/daughter team finally did a couple of good movies together (TWINS and TREASON) before it was too late. They prove once again here that they are both formidable talents, excelling at drama, be it nuanced or melodramatic, AND comedy, high or low brow, It is simply a treat to see them together. Watch for it.
