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

A young actress makes this simple movie very enjoyable
5 July 2004 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I only saw the second half of the movie, and that should be a statement for itself. I never, really never watch a movie if it's not from the VERY beginning, except if special reasons are involved. This one was special. And her name is Angela Gots. She has just made my day. At first I was amused by her beauty, but in a matter of minutes discovered that there's definitely more to her. Her subtle facial expressions were truly impressive and the fact that she had no fear is even more. All in all this movie was a mass of above-standard acting and it made it highly entertaining. A small jewel perhaps, but then the lead actress is definitely a diamond in the ruff.
