Great fun
11 December 2001 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A Partilha is a great film, bringing out great performances from four amazing actresses, in special Andréa Beltrão and Lilia Cabral. It was refreshing to see such a well written story in such a familiar environment. If you're in the mood for great laughs, this is the one.
