I enjoyed watching this novella. It's filled with different love stories & likable characters. Best Performances by: Vanessa Giacomo, Maria Flor, Patricia Pillar, Carolina Kasting, Regiane Alves, Daniel De Oliveira, Malvino Salvador, Eriberto Leao, Tony Ramos, Mauro Mendonca & Danton Mello.
The Best couple in my opinion was Tina (Maria Flor) & Tome (Eriberto Leao). Tome was engaged to Tina's older sister, Rosa, but Rosa ran away to marry another man. Tome has never forgotten Rosa, even though Tina has repeatedly claimed her love for him. They finally get married & he seemingly has forgotten Rosa - until their "First Time" when he accidentally calls her Rosa. A month passes & the couple are living happily: he's never called Tina Rosa. Then one fateful day, Tome gets into a fight with another man, gets shot & dies in Tina's arms. Tina seems to have given up on life until she discovers she's pregnant with the only child she'll ever have with Tome. I have cried countless times with Tina.
This is definitely worth watching.
