Storyline

In the 70's, Alex Markov is raised by her mother Clarice Markov to be a successful ballerina, and in their home there are no mysteries or taboo related to sex, since her father, Dr. Dan Markov, openly discusses this subject with his family. When Alex reaches sixteen years old, her parents split while her boyfriend presses her to have sex blurring her dreams and making her confused. With the support of her family and friends, Alex supersedes her problems. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My brief review of the film
8 December 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Although in many regards mediocre, the quality of the acting in this film makes it rather decent viewing. It is interesting to watch to see Alison Lohman, whose face is expressive as ever still in a pre success and fame role, but the lead actress, Angela Gots, and the supporting cast, offer some good bits of acting too. Some parts of the cinematography and editing are also rather noteworthy, but it is mainly just the solid acting that keeps it strong, and that it sure does do. This is not an amazing film, with ordinary characters and a story that is hardly exciting, but it is probably worth a look, particularly for fans of Lohman, who plays a character that is actually atypical to her usual innocence for a change.
