Good enough!
12 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I went to watch the movie last week and I really enjoyed it. It shows how men and women feel a separation after it's done and how difficult it's for them to continue with their lives... Everybody loves, that's cool! The movie let you see how big and obsessive a feeling can get, it talks about trust, love, personal search, the permanence of love in time, growing up, sex and almost brotherhood. The actors were quite good, perhaps the characters were difficult to recreate but I liked the way the did it... I didn't know Ana and when I saw how she felt that character it was great. I think that her face is appropriate for Sofia. I think that the Director is the same who directed Carandiru, isn't him?
