Mediocre at best
bgperes from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
11 May 2005
Despite the beautiful Ornella Muti and some competent Brazilian actors,
this movie is mediocre at best. The movie begins, and as the plot
starts to develop, it looks like it will be an interesting movie, but
don't get your hopes up. As the story unfolds, the movie gets
unexciting and slow paced.
Cheesy plot and weak production make it look like a bad Brazilian TV
special. The morality issues involved in it are debated in a dramatic
and obvious way, and sometimes you even get the feeling that you're
watching a Brazilian soap opera.
The sound is another turn off, unlike most recent Brazilian
productions, the sound isn't very nice (it's not so bad either). Scenes
where the dialog audio is too reverberant (because of the location)
were not dubbed over, making it sound real bad and even not very
Special negative remark on the Brazilian TV version, where Ornella's
voice was dubbed over by a voice actress (you can't air captioned
movies in Brazilian TV, only in cable channels). The voice actress is
good, and this wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't so badly mixed with
the original audio.
All that being said, Ornella is still a great sight for sore eyes, and
if you like her as much as myself, you might wanna check this out.
