I am English, trying to learn Brazilian Portuguese as I want to live in Brazil. I bought the DVD of this movie because the synopsis sounded like my kind of film and I thought it might help me with the language. I'm not sure if I have learnt much, but I really enjoyed the film and it just seems to be better every time I watch it! It's not exactly hilarious, but it's not boring or too predictable. Whilst the plot is necessarily far-fetched, it is well acted and I found all the characters totally convincing. It is a gentle comedy that rolls along nicely and I am happy to watch it again and again. It's the sort of film that will cheer you up when you're having a bad day.
