Neither Funny nor Dramatic
23 February 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In São Paulo, the lawyer Thales (Marcos Palmeira) has been married with the wealthy and spoiled Renata (Mariana Ximenes) for ten years. Her father Augusto (Antônio Fagundes) is a powerful and amoral businessman that gave an excellent job position to his son-in-law in a law firm. Thales best friend is Rui (Otávio Muller), who is married with Pâmela (Maria Luísa Mendonça) and has three children and tells everybody that his wife is a dumb person. During a weekend in the countryside of São Paulo in the fancy mansion of Renata, Thales has a breakdown and decides to quit working and stay in the house with Pâmela and her children. Renata and Rui that are lovers for more than ten years travel together back to São Paulo to have wild and kinky sex. Meanwhile Thales gets close to Pâmela and they have one night stand. Renata and Rui return to the house and she lies to Thales, telling that Rui brought her from the office of Augusto. When Augusto calls Thales from New York, he discovers that Renata is lying and discloses her love affair with Rui.

"A Mulher do Meu Amigo" is an amoral story with a great potential that unfortunately is neither funny nor dramatic. The screenplay is awful, without development of the characters, and the direction of Cláudio Torres is lost, never deciding whether the genre is a comedy or a drama. The result shows erotic situation without nudity; non-funny jokes; and shallow dramatic situation. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Mulher do Meu Amigo" ("The Wife of My Friend")
