Storyline

It is the 80's, and fourteen year-old Filipa is spending her vacation at Búzios with her father, Mathias, her alcoholic mother, Clarice, and her two younger siblings in their beach house. When Filipa feels that the relationship of her parents is deteriorating, she snoops in her father's office. There she finds pictures of Mathias with his American lover Ângela hidden in a drawer of his desk. When Mathias and Clarice announce to their children that they are not going to live together for a period, the confused Filipa believes that Ângela is the responsible for the separation of her parents and discovers that the marriage of Mathias and Clarice is built on a bed of lies. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A realistic story about love and adolescence
20 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a coming of age story. Filipa is fourteen years old and dealing with the usual issues of a teen: sexuality, social acceptance, and self identity.

At the same time, her parents' relationship is crumbling under the weight of a real crisis.

All children confront the reality of their parents' imperfection at some point. Up till now, Filipa has seen her mother and (especially) her father through the eyes of an adoring child. She has to dispense with the childish viewpoint and confront reality, as she perceives it, just as the family's foundation is threatened. She feels her world crumbling around her as she realizes that she never really understood the real foundation of the family. In the end, she is adrift without any direction or understanding.

The resolution of this story is an imperfect one, with all involved parties grasping for the little pieces of happiness that can be salvaged. It is a realistic ending to a real-world story.

This story is about love, in all its forms--familial, romantic, platonic. It is love that sets them all adrift and love that provides whatever solace can be found.
