Everything has a A side and a B side
17 January 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The director Anna Muylaert choose Durval to resume the spirit of nostalgia of people who until the 90's think that they would always live with LP'S , without the new technology of the CD.OK, this , in theory, was the theme of the movie, but the story takes the way of the madness, the way of the "non-sense", showing the wish of an old lady to have a company of a children. Although the amazing sound track,with songs of Sá e Guarabira, Jorge Ben, Toquinho e Vinicius, Tim Maia and others Brazilian music icons, the movie does not have good cinema technology details like screenplay, and the places where the movie is filmed are terrible, without any care.
