Charming and Delightful Coming to Age Tale
2 April 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Curuguazu, in the countryside of Argentina, the seventeen year-old Daniel Montero (Tomás Fonzi) has been raised by his grandmother for three years since the death of his parents in a car accident. Daniel has a boring life, working in a poultry processing plant and meeting his friends in the square for small talk. He saves some money from his salary and buys an old television, where he watches the late night show of the porn star Sabrina Love (Cecilia Roth). When Daniel wins a contest to spend one night with Sabina Love in Buenos Aires, he does not have the 50 pesos of the bus ticket and hitchhikes along 500 kilometers with truck drivers to the city. He is robbed on the road but arrives in Buenos Aires on Saturday morning, but the television postpones his meeting with Sabrina Love to Monday. Without any money, he visits his older brother Enrique (Fabián Vena) that left his hometown many years ago to study agronomy in Buenos Aires and does not know that his parents are deceased. Along the few days in the big city, Daniel discovers the truth about the secret life of Enrique; sex with Sabrina Love; and love with the independent journalist Sofia (Julieta Cardinali) returning a more self-confident teenager to Curuguazu.

"Una Noche con Sabrina Love" is a charming and delightful coming to age Argentinean tale totally different from the usually stupid American movies of this genre. This dramatic comedy of discoveries of a teenager that leaves the quiet town to spend three days in a big city is directed by Alejandro Agresti of "Valentin" and has Cecilia Roth in the role of a successful porn-star. The screenplay deserved some improvements, since there are sequences that are confused. For example, the shy attitude of Daniel when he visits Sofia in her apartment and does not have sex with her is unexplained; or why he does not tell his beloved brother that their parents have died; or why he is a compulsive liar. Anyway, this film is an enjoyable entertainment and was released on VHS in Brazil by Buena Vista Home Entertainment distributor. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Noite com Sabrina Love" ("One Night with Sabrina Love")
