Shallow Silliness
24 May 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After the death of their mother, four sisters reunite to sell her apartment and share their inheritance. The conservative and repressed Selma (Glória Pires) that is married to a rigid military misses her mother and has just acknowledge that her fifteen years old daughter is pregnant of a spiritual leader. The other three sisters are only interested in receiving their share: Regina (Andrea Beltrão) is an independent woman that has brief love affairs; Lúcia (Lilia Cabral) lives in Paris with her French husband and they run a butchery but her son hates her; Laura (Paloma Duarte) is lesbian and wants to move to Germany to present her thesis about smile. While together, revelations are disclosed and wounds are opened and closed by the sisters.

"A Partilha" is a shallow silliness, with a dysfunctional family that is a sample of the world in accordance with the "Globo Broadcast" standard. The characters are insecure, hysterical and unstable; use drugs to "calm down"; have problems with fidelity; are lesbian; capable of cheating the own sister, abandon the son, or give total freedom to a fifteen year old daughter… but in the corny end, everything is nostalgic. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Partilha" ("The Sharing")
