Storyline

In São Paulo, 15 year-old Hermano "Mano" and his 17 year-old sensitive brother Pedro are deeply affected by the destruction of their middle-class family when his father, Horácio, leaves their mother, Camila. Mano is still a virgin and has a crush on Valéria, an easy girl that studies in his class, while Pedro is in love with Bia for whom he has promised eternal love. When Mano and Pedro find that their father is gay and that he is the adviser of his new mate Gustavo, they feel their world torn apart. Mano's best friend is Carol, who has a crush on their Physics teacher, Artur, and they share their secrets. In their upper-class high-school, the schoolmates are afraid of the destructive "Blog of Dri Novaes" written by a snoopy mate. When Carol kisses Artur in a cafeteria things suddenly become more complicated. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great Brazilian movie about adolescence
20 April 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Its so good to watch a Brazilian movie thats not about violence, misery or slums, nor is a mindless comedy. This one really deserves a look from everyone, principally teenagers.

Things start superb while the characters are being introduced, and the (several) stories are being drawn. You can see the actors are doing a great job; they're really captivating and likable. The directing of Lais Bodanzki is superb from beginning to end.

The only problem I have with this movie is the lack of a main story. The movie tries (and succeeds) at showing each and every aspect of teen years: relationship with parents, sexuality, friends, school, drugs. But in this desire to be so many things, the movie lacks in consistency, which is absolutely clear from the middle to the end. There are a lot of situations that are just disposable, what drags the movie a bit at some parts.

Anyway, considering thats a Brazilian movie, it goes from good to great, knowing we don't have such a film industry as United States. Definitely one of my favorites since City of God. 3/5!
