Storyline

Karen Moone is a needy woman with an unfaithful boyfriend that is completely miserable after the suicide of her mother. Her only friend is the punk singer and baker Marnie Lowell. Kyle Elliot is a man bored with his perfect middle-class life with the shallow and beautiful wife Sarah that works composing jingles for advertisements. While waiting for a bus in a rainy night, Karen and Kyle are violently assaulted by a thief and Karen has amnesia. Kyle pretends that he lost his memories too and both stay in a church, where they fall in love for each other. When Kyle is located by his wife and Karen recalls her previous life, they both miss the time they spend together. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A good film
15 September 2004 | by coolaid74See all my reviews

I liked it a lot. The messages were certainly relevant for our time and the story moved along at a good pace. I found the characters to be engaging and the differences in them kept things interesting. I like character driven films and this was a good example. I thought the music added to the film and that the director did a good job of making such a musical film work without distracting the audience. It's a pretty film to watch. even though the content can be a bit disturbing...But, all in all a good engaging story. I think it touches on a culture that has lost its center and how these two main characters personify that view. I really enjoyed the special features too.
