The Rio/SP FilmFests' Unofficial Critic says: Not for Everyone
19 October 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Not for everyone, this film "ROSE WINE" refers to wine made at the convent where our heroine spends her youth. The film is a "what if" biography of the daughter who Brazil's pro-independence leader "Tiradentes" MAY have had.

Developing this story in the picturesque state of "Minas Gerais", the film presents us a child, brought up in a convent, with no knowledge whatsoever of her origins. The screenplay claims, however, she is Joaquina, the only legitimate child of Tiradentes, the hero of the Brazilian pro-independence rising.

Brought up in a convent, she has grown into a charming, lively young lady, despite strict convent rules, as the film begins. Then, some time later at the age of 18, she discovers she is Tiradentes' daughter and that her mother is still alive.

This discovery alters her life (I'll avoid spoilers), but she continues to make rose wine, just as she did at the convent. The film is a simple period piece, presumably meant to be appreciated for its aesthetic qualities. However, at 143 minutes, the picture overextends its welcome and becomes dull.
