As is difficult to live together with the own decadence!!
1 September 1999 | by paulo BHSee all my reviews

Stelinha is a film that reminds the classic of Billy Wilder " Sunset Boulevard ". A youth musician meets accidentally with a famous singer of the 50's years, now almost forgotten. He wraps up with her and it ends if turning your lover, in the hope of removing her of your sad road of alcoholism and depression and initiate again her career of singer. However, unable to recover her, he desist of him good intentions, leaving her definitively and, involuntarily, pushing her to the more completes decadence. The end of the film, with Stelinha in rags singing for a group of indigent and beggars, it is depressing... Winner of the Festival of Brazilian Movies of Gramado, this movie, accomplished in 1990, it is the best interpretation of the beautiful Brazilian actress Esther Goes.
