Stunningand and Reflexive
15 December 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a great Brazilian movie. With a extremely enjoyable and beautiful photography, the director Emis Filho tells a very personal history that makes you reflect about existentialism in a very determinate period of age: the teenage. The movie is about life, death, lonely and love... a very strange but sincere love.

Together with the flexible script, the actors provide a impressive naturality with the dialogues and also with the scenes where there's no conversations. Therewithal, we have a mystery on the history, but that's just part of the charm, because it is revealed with not so much noise.

Summarizing: The movie is just beautiful!
