A melancholic and hard masterpiece
21 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

The best film of 1998. The return of a filmmaker very intelligent and sensible, who has not yet been considered a "mester". Maria Luiza Mendonça act is very intense, an actress who always plays very uncommon roles gives us a gift in her debout in the Cinema speaking in a language that is not her birth one. It's an obligatory movie.
