Shallow and Predictable, but Delightfully Entertaining
23 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, the sensitive Pedro (Selton Mello) worships his wife Marina (Maria Luisa Mendonça) and expects to have a conventional married life with children. His next door neighbor Vitoria (Maria Manoella), who is married with a rude detective, dreams on the romanticism of Pedro and listens to him through the wall between her kitchen and his living room. When Marina discloses to Pedro that she is pregnant of her German lover and leaves Pedro, he becomes depressed, but his best friend Carlos (Vladimir Brichta) convinces him to have sex with many women. However Pedro has a breakdown; quits his job; and decides to stay alone. One night, the beautiful and sexy neighbor Amanda (Luana Piovani) knocks on Pedro's front door and asks for a cup of sugar. They immediately fall in love for each other and Pedro recovers the meaning of his life; but Carlos discovers that Amanda exists only in Pedro's imagination and that his friend is actually disturbed. When Pedro finds the truth, he becomes confused and without sense of reality. Meanwhile Vitoria's husband dies and her sister Lucia (Fernanda Torres) convinces her to meet Pedro; but the guy is not sure that Vitoria does exist.

"A Mulher Invisível" is shallow and predictable, but the funny and simple story is delightfully entertaining. This movie works basically because of the performance of the great Brazilian actor Selton Mello and the beauty of the sexy Luana Piovani that is indeed the personification of a perfect woman. The sweet Maria Manoella is also gorgeous and completes very well the triangle of love that Pedro gets involved. I am a big fan of Janis Joplin and I love the wonderful song "A Woman Left Lonely"; but the international soundtrack seems to be out of the context of a Brazilian movie that should have promoted Brazilian singers and bands instead. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Mulher Invisível" ("The Invisible Woman")
