A touching movie about loneliness and love
22 November 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

"The Other Side of the Street" is one of those wonderful films that may be a little hard to take in, but that are so worth the experience. It brilliantly tells a story of a woman on her 60s who is desperately lonely, who is looking for some reason to feel alive and needed. When she witnesses something strange happening on the other side of the street, she immediately finds a way to bring that event into her own dark life. Once more, Fernanda Montenegro proves to be an amazing actress, by giving to her character different nuances of one single self. She is just perfect. It's an actor's film, beautifully directed by M. Bernstein, co-writer of "Central Station". And the music, or the lack of it at some points, transfers the feeling of loneliness from the screen right into the audience. I definitely recommend this film, for those who wish to reflect about the consequences of modern times on common people's lives.
