Storyline

The runaway teenager Joe leaves her dysfunctional mother after being beat by her lover Harry. She meets Engel and his punk friends on the streets and the boy lodges her in the abandoned building where he lives. Engel tells her that he dreams on living in the mountains in a community of his own, raising animals and planting his own food, and they fall in love for each other. When Joe gets pregnant, Engel assumes the baby, but without a profession, the young couple faces serious financial difficulties and problems. When Engel gets addicted on drugs, he drags Joe to a low life including prostitution. But there is light in the mountain. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A beautifully shot story that we've all seen before.
26 August 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it's me, but I tend to tire of true stories. And Engel and Joe just happens to be one of them. The plot seems old and cliché. A sappy love story on how love always prevails. The film brings nothing new to the plate.

It had it's moments however, mostly attributed by the excellently crafted atmosphere. The films aesthetic values, particularly the cinematography and music, are what maintain any sense of interest.

Don't, however, attempt to avoid seeing this film. After all, no matter how many times we've heard it before, it seems like people never tire of stories from the heart.
