Dramatic comedy in Mexico - Romantic comedy in Brazil
Brazilian adaptation of the Mexican Box Office hit "Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas". If you saw the original it's interesting to compare how the same story evolves in such different places has Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro. The film is well done and keeps your attention, having a faster pace than the original, being a honest try to do a modern light-hearted screwball comedy. Besides that, the more dramatic situations are deleted from the original script, so that you don't think to much and get to the end with a smile on your face. Try to see both (although not masterpieces they both deserve 90 minutes of your time)... You decide, which one is best.
