Daniel de Oliveira,
Benjamim Zambraia is a lonely man, a famous model with a tragic past. Some time in the past, he showed some officers the exact location where the woman he loved was hiding with her guerilla lover. As a result, the two were killed. One day, he casually meets a woman who looks very much like his former love, and this fact changes his life. Could she be the daughter of his great love? Or her reincarnation? Written by
I don't agree completely with debblyst. The film is exceptionally well played by all actors, especially Cleo Pires. I say this maybe because I am perceiving the whole film as having a fellinian atmosphere. I admit, I'm a big fan of Federico Fellini and Italian cinema in general. I also know that Brazilian cinema had serious influences from the Italians. Italian actor Adolfo Celi founded modern theater in Brazil in the 50s. And Cleo Pires reminded me through her irresistible smile, especially captured in so many close-ups, the smile that had the greatest actress of all time, the female Chaplin, Fellini's wife, Giulietta Masina. Cleo Pires is performing a dual role in absolute naturalness, she's original, beautiful, glamorous. The photography is great. The editing is very professional. The music is inspired. Castana and Benjamin are going to the cinema to see Claude Lelouch's "Un homme et une femme". Their kiss on the music by Francis Lai is the best scene in the whole movie. Agree with the fact that the film is a little bit predictable. Agree also with the fact that the rape scene is disappointing, could have been more realistic. 8 out of 10.
