You might enjoy this film, even if I haven't. Or have I?
22 May 2000 | by merieSee all my reviews

Sometimes one can discover hidden gems at a film festival. Sometimes you see a film which could have been made anywhere, shown anywhere. I am not sure about this one. The story is about a devoted middle aged mother who along the way starts to suspect her son is involved in criminal activities as he deviates from their daily routine. It is intriguing to see how this overbearing, extremely loving (almost incestuous) mother opens her eyes to the awful truth as her son seems to drift further and further away from her, bringing home strange new friends, receiving mysterious phone calls. And then the story ends, it dies like a candle put in a draft. What seemed to be at the beginning a psychological drama changes - briefly - into a thriller, but doesn't quite live up to either genre. The acting though is superb. And to foreign ears like mine, the Brazilian Portugese sounds absolutely enticing. You might enjoy this film, even if I haven't. Or have I?
