feels like something from a movie directed and produced by students
11 February 2003 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Even knowing beforehand 44 votes is not something to be trusted, i was very disappointed after watching this movie. Its IMDB voting average (the day before i watched the film) was 8.1, which led me to think this was at least a good movie. Maybe someone who worked on it inflated the ratings. As i watched this movie, the impression that it was a production of Movie students got stronger and stronger, a kind of "this was the best i could have done, with the limitations i had". Poor photography, vague direction and acting that was nothing out of the ordinary, all could be the result of the collective work of people with little experience and/or talent. The lead actress is above the film average, but i was already thinking of turning the TV off and go to sleep 48 minutes after the beginning. Just a dull movie, most people would rather skip it. 4 out of 10.
