Storyline

Synopsis Maria, an executive from Oporto, lives in the search of the right man for her. On the other hand, her two friends, Joana, a doctor that has fallen in love to a co-worker, and Isilda, a hairdresser with an open hart and an adventurous spirit, seem to be happy with their lives. One day though, everything changes. Maria is forced to take care of her father, victim of a brain accident. During these days of turbulence, Maria thinks she has found the perfect man, a mysterious Star, an habitué of chat channels on the Internet. The three friends find out that cense of humour can be the key for a happy life. Internet, romance, a bachelor party; marriage, dates and some adventures are Loving Maria. A film where love shows himself with the most different looks. Love arrives when you don't expect it and goes away when you think it is safe. It can even appear in the light of a mobile computer. Written by Pandora da Cunha Telles

A gentle comedy with a heart
8 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

A very nice Portuguese film that makes you smile and laugh, with very good production values (except the Portuguese blight - the sound). It's rare to find a Portuguese film that dares to be low key, but this one does and gets away with it nicely. There's a coherence to it, too, and a well rounded off resolution.

And there are some lovely performances, notably from the hilarious Ana Brito e Cunha as Isilda and the very lovely Isabel Abreu as Joana. Along with the stunning Catarina Furtado as the Maria of the title, these are three friends who just can't seem to get their relationships right, but we have a couple of hours' fun (with the occasional moist eye) watching them try.
