José Mojica Marins,
Maurício do Valle,
I saw this movie in Toronto and the full house gave it a huge applause
people around me wept with the emotion of the movie - although it is
not a sad movie at all - it is at times hilarious and very delightful. We have seen attempts at scripts of women who fall in love with each other - but they are so stilted and awkward - this movie treats the theme with a delicacy and grace that rises above anything petty or mundane - and this from a 'male' director from a 'macho' culture? I note this because it just proves we cannot accept stereotypes - we must not. The promo stated that the men are not left behind in this story and it is true - the men are strong characters with their own self-worth and we admire everyone in the end. As well, the scenery is fantastic - a Patagonia I would love to visit. A must see.
