Never Let the Child Inside You Die
15 August 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In her forty years old birthday, the boring and serious housewife Julia (Diane Salinger) is gifted with a bottle of magic bubbles and her wish is to forget her age. She is granted and changes her behavior, acting like a young woman and bringing happiness to her daughter, her son, her psychiatrist and her mother-in-law. Her husband Charles (John Calvin) does not accept her new personality and threatens her with the divorce. However, in a supermarket Julia meets Mac (George Clooney in the beginning of his successful career), a young man who falls in love with her. This fable is a wonderful screenplay, showing that you shall never let the child inside you die, no matter your age. Diane Salinger, who has a wonderful voice, fits perfectly to the role of Julia, but unfortunately John Calvin has a very weak performance as Charles. This is a low-budget movie, but with some improvement in the screenplay, a better actor in the role of Charles and some adult situation between Julia and Mac (such as an affair), it would probably be a wonderful fairy tale. Anyway, it is a good entertainment for the whole family. The English title in Brazil is `The Magic Bubble'. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Jovem Para Sempre' (`Young Forever')
