A Realistic Contemporary Dramatic Comedy
26 June 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, the forty and something years old Mercedes (Lília Cabral) goes to the psychoanalyst and tells the story of her life since she was a girl and lost her mother. Along the three years of analysis, her life changes and she divorces from her husband Gustavo (José Mayer) and has love affairs with the younger Theo (Reynaldo Gianecchini) and other young men, always supported by her best friend Monica (Alexandra Richter). When she is discharged by her doctor, she concludes that life is unpredictable and is to be enjoyed while we are alive.

"Divã" is a dramatic comedy with a simple and realistic story of a mature married woman with two sons that changes her life after going to her psychoanalyst that works because of the excellent performance of Lília Cabral. This awesome actress alternates funny with dramatic moments giving total credibility to her character Mercedes. Many viewers many not like the non-commercial epilogue of the story that shifts the genre from comedy to drama. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Divã" ("Divan")
