As beautiful as it gets
30 April 2004 | by (Recife, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brazilian movies often appeal to things such as violence, drugs, and (mostly) sex. This one is different. It tells the story of an elderly woman (Fernanda Montenegro) who lives alone and works for the police by reporting crimes she sees when she goes out or looks out the window. One night, she sees what appears to be a murder on the apartment across the street (somewhat hitchcocky, this part). A man (Raul Cortez) gives his wife an injection and she dies. The police doesn't listen to her, so she has to go find out the truth by herself. That's when the beautiful and enchanting love story begins. This woman falls in love with the suspect (who's also an elderly man) and finds out that it's never too late to live a love story again.

It shows that even if you think you're the loneliest person alive, and have no hope, someone will be there waiting for you. no matter how old you are.

This movie really makes me proud. It shows sex, but in a beautiful way. It shows violence, but in a real-but-not-too-shocking way... it's about loneliness, hope, and of course, love!

Fernanda Montenegro and Raul Cortez have an incredibly wonderful chemestry, they're both marvelous actors, and did a great job... and so did the director Marcos Berstein. The photography (cinematography?) is also wonderful. One of the best brazilian movies ever, for sure. a MUST-SEE! 9 out of 10!
