Bossa Nova goes awry.
26 January 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I'm a great fan of Bossa Nova. I like movies that are inspired or talk about the theme because i can always expect something surprisingly good regarding the story or (specially) the soundtrack.

i've just seen the movie. And here's what i've got to say about it: I wouldn't see it again because i feel that even if i did, i wouldn't find any meaning in the parts that i didn't understand what the director was doing between the time warps and explanations here and there. A narrative pacing should have been included to ease the problem.

And also, to be very honest i couldn't tell the resemblance between the young characters from the older ones (Except, of course, for the bass player - the black guy).

I really thought that Old-Santoro's was alive and not dead and i felt annoyed all the time when i had to start "thinking and assuming" some contexts within the movie to try to understand it. You get lost and annoyed in this process and the movie goes awry. At least for me.

Other than that, the only thing that i have to cheer in this movie is the soundtrack. I agree with the other opinions so far inserted in here and other than that i have nothing else to add.
