[DVD Review] Alice's House

Alice's House

While domestic dissatisfaction has long been a staple of European film (notably British) the stylistic explosion of Brazilian cinema has left a distinct impression that the Latin American nation is all about fighting and favelas, seemingly ignoring the large urban centers where people live out their lives in relative normalcy. Taking us inside the titular Sao Paulo dwelling, helmer Chico Tiexeira drifts amidst a humid air of simmering resentment, raging hormones and boorish male entitlement that illustrates how it can indeed be grim down south, too.

Mother to three lay-about teenage boys and neglected wife to a skirt-chasing hubby, Alice (Carla Ribas) is a portrait of ruined passion and quiet melancholy. Toiling as a manicurist at a local beauty parlor, her day is typically spent buffing the feet of women like stuck-up regular Carmen (Renata Zhaneta) who delights in embellishing every detail of an infinitely more interesting romantic life. »
