Put a Bandaid on it
11 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival. Violeta (Alessandra Negrini) is a 40 year old attractive dentist. Her husband Djalma (Otto Jr.) has been giving thought to his life and marriage while going for a swim and has come to the conclusion that he's going to leave his wife, kids and the city. Violeta finds out about this in a phone message just hours after making love to him and heading out for her work day. She decides to drop everything and catch a plane to go in search of her wayward husband but finds that the last plane has left and she'll have to wait until morning for the next flight. After experiencing a series of clumsy injuries, checking into a hotel and having a night out in a club she runs into Bel (Gasi Pereira), a homeless little girl who likes to collect Bandaids and her single parent father Nassir (Thiago Martins). While wandering the Rio streets, beaches and airport she mulls over the thought of whether her husband is worth it or not. This moves along slowly and meanders all over the place. Negrini is a good screen character but there's not enough for her to do. Fairly weak acting by the other principal characters dealing with a weak script by writer Beatriz Bracher. Nice production design by Marcos Pedroso and cinematography by Mauropin Heiro the film is directed by Karim Ainour. I would give this a 5.5 out of 10.
