The first couple, Carlos and Ana, live on the seventh floor of a building. Ana feels she's entitled to more love than her husband is willing to give.

"Sexo, Amor e Traição" (I have no know idea what will the English name be) is one of those films you just have to see. I'm not saying it's wonderful (you'll fell frustrated if you think it is) but it's funny and intelligent, what is enough for such holiday times. The team of actors may me unknown for people who live outside Brazil, but here they're famous for their long years in soap operas (I recommend you check their filmography here in IMDb). Director Jorge Fernando, also famous here in Brazil for his directions in funny soap operas rules this film with a great intelligent humour. The situations are common but they have a slice of ridicule - something good for comedies. So, go to the nearest cinema or video shop and check it out.
