Storyline

Julia is a 35-year-old English Literature teacher struggling with depression as she tries to get her life back together again after her long, intense love affair with Antonia. Feeling totally abandoned after she and her enigmatic girlfriend broke up, Julia is thrown into a desperate, painful process. Her life and her values have been tinged with unbearable melancholy and her life's measure seems reduced to out-of-focus fragments of her memories. Her inner turmoil and conflicts hamper a process now made necessary - that of readapting to her new life. It is impossible for her to disguise her pain when she attempts to narrate emotions.

The pain of breakups.
16 January 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Before I even start reviewing this film, let me say that I am a Scandinav and we in our north frozen countries have a different view of life than South Americans obviously do. Rejection is a part of life and nothing to be feared. Seeing this film I realized that not everybody share that view. "So hard to forget" is an intellectual film centered around one womans struggle to let go of a recent breakup of a relationship with another woman and how she copes with that. Not well in my eyes, and if she had not had her friend Hugo, things would have looked very bad for her. But Hugo was there - a friend that would be everybodys wish - and she makes it through it. More than halfway into the film she meets a woman she connects with, but again, not without struggle. All the actors in this film carried it through - not one bad actor amongst them. Julia was played superbly by Ana Paula Arósio , maybe too much so - she was difficult to like. For me was Hugo, played by Murilo Rosa, the star of the film, and somehow I do not think this was intentional. Arieta Correia as Helena was to fall in love With - very nice personality. I wanted so to like this film, and I did sort of, but too much suffering kind of spoiled it for me. But than again - Im not from there - I might have missed the point.
