Saudade is the Brazilian term for the sadness we feel at happy memories now in the past
16 April 2004 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Three German buddies vacation in Brazil financing their trip by webs-casting naked web-cam shots of themselves on their trip. All three have their own agendas as well.

Rich boy Cyrus is convinced that he can find his Brazilian mother. Musician Tim is convinced he can find his own sound. And romantic Erik is convinced that he can find love. When Erik meets and falls for a Brazilian soap star it looks as though he may be right but when an anonymous tryst on the beach goes wrong and ends in a stabbing things turn sour.

I've seen several of Bruning's films and this is by far my favorite. Perhaps its the sense of longing that permeates all of the characters in the piece and the hope that there may actually be a happy ending here.
