Stylish, sexy soap with a mystical touch
22 September 2001 | by (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – See all my reviews

PRESENÇA DE ANITA (ANITA'S PRESENCE) was the great mouth-to-mouth subject during its 16 episodes, mostly because of the spicy sex scenes between a middle-aged man and a teenager. The plot is obviously an influence of Nabokov's LOLITA (though it's based on a novel) and the soap opera atmosphere is always there, but this mini series was a high above the average production for Rede Globo's level. The actors are great (Mel Lisboa, 19, in her acting debut, was incredibly sexy and diabolical), the sex scenes were realistic and the whole thematic of destiny, obsession and tragedy gave a great mystery/ mystical tone that kept our attention from start to finish. It was somewhat slow and with some dumb subplots in the start, but the last episode was excellent, really eye-opening. The last scene, Anita's last line and the music theme will stay in my mind for a long time. If it ever sees the daylight in the US, Europe or anywhere out of Brazil, I recommend you to watch it.
