Storyline

A 50 year-old woman who analyses her past. She pictures herself when she was 20 years old and she re-creates the story of her life through a game of innumerous possibilities... What if she wouldn't have gone to that ball? What if... instead of meeting the man of her life, with whom she married and had kids, she would have called a girlfriend and they went to the theater? What would be her destiny? What would have happened? In the plot the present talks to the past. A young woman projects her future in a fascinating game between memories and desires. Written by Daniel Filho

Goofs

The movie is set on the present day (2003/2004), and if the young Carolina is supposed to be 30 years younger than her mature self she would be living in 1973/1974. Instead, her younger self is clearly living in the 1960's, judging from the dresses she wears, the hair-style she uses and the historical events surrounding the story. The filmmakers were probably aware of this, but chose the 1960s because it's widely considered a far more interesting period in Brazilian history than the 1970s. See more »

A nutcase of a movie
5 November 2011 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

My oh my, this was such a waste of time! I wish I could recover the 90 minutes of my life that I wasted in watching this lousy movie! This film is so dull, so boring, so slow, so predictable and so irritating. The plot is lousy, acting is lousy and direction is lousy aside some (but very few) beautiful landscapes of Brazil.

This movie tells the story of a middle-aged couple and how they met in their youth. In the present day, the wife is a bitter woman with an explosive temper and verbally attacks her husband for every little thing he does or says. She is simply impossible, and yet he still attempts to save their marriage.

Their romance in their youth wasn't much better either. Frankly, I hardly liked anything at all in this movie, which I consider one of the worst I have seen to this day.
