Pointless Romance
5 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Porto Alegre, the unemployed Ciro (Júlio Andrade) has a dull life in a simple apartment with a nameless stray dog that he had found on the streets. Ciro is supported by his parents and works every now and then in translation of Russian. When he meets the aspirant actress Marcela (Tainá Müller), who dreams on traveling to other places, they immediately fall in love for each other. However, Marcela has a lymphoma and travels for a treatment, and alone Marcelo becomes depressed and returns to his parents home.

"Cão Sem Dono" is a nice movie, very well acted and with a realistic story disclosed in a extremely slow pace. However, the weak screenplay does not develop well the characters, and the viewer ends the movie, for example, not sure about what Ciro might have studied (we know that he has college education and occasionally works in translations of Russian only, but we do not know his profession) or whether Marcela is an aspirant actress or model. The dialogs are very poor, there are some ellipses and the story is quite pointless, with an open conclusion. Last but not the least, the comparison of the situation of Ciro and his stray dog never works. My vote is six.
