The needy and traumatized Theresa, who was raped when she was fourteen year-old, meets the handsome John on the street after an accident during a performance on the stage of her friend Kim asking for a low-budget hotel. She offers a ride to a nearby hostel, they date and she brings him home, where he offers Ecstasy with wine to her. Kim advises her that John is a dangerous drug-dealer that has been missing for five years after the death of his girlfriend also called Theresa, but Theresa stays with him, practicing mutual masturbation, sharing her fears and fantasies and being permanently drugged. When John's friend Billy visits Theresa, he reveals dark secrets about her boyfriend, leading to a tragic end. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This movie sucked
10 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Why is it that every guy with a digital camera thinks that he is some kind of "auteur"? Give me a break...this was a poorly executed film that suffered by an even poorer idea for a story - namely, it wasn't particularly original. Besides the hackneyed acting and the distracting "mood" music, the film sports a series of rather stomach-turning "love" scenes. They're the kind of scenes that make the sex in some of the more flakier HBO dramas seem inspired. It doesn't help that the plot is painfully transparent - nothing to keep you on the edge of your seat or guessing what happens next. The story is simple: Girl meets boy, girl falls in love, boy pushes drugs on girl, girl gets hooked, girl's life falls apart. Pretty much ripped from your average TV-movie-of-the-week. Throw in some cringe-worthy dialogue and some pretentious emoting from the two leads and you're in for an hour and a half of some very dry sub-par Kiwi soap - the kind that you might find on the really "up there" channels, between the weather news and the test signal stations. Inexplicably, one of the leads (Christopher Brown) won the Best Actor prize at a New Zealand film fest for this movie. I think that says more about New Zealand film festivals than it does about the thespian skills of Mr. Brown...
