A fun story about a family of 3 sisters whose gay brother, Nino, has decided to marry a woman in order to inherit their childhood summer retreat (Hotel Paraiso) on the coast of Portugal. The sisters plot to sabotage the engagement so as to save the hotel for themselves.Written by
This film is just wonderful. It tells the story of three different women that have lived their lives very differently and whom aren't happy with their present. The marriage of their brother is just the starting point of a bunch of situations, some funny, some sentimental, all very human. For me it isn't a gay story it's a lot more, it's a way to show the reality of how the life can take you by roads you even imagine and turn you into a person you are not, until you realize that you aren't doing what you want. Also it presents the importance of family, even if it isn't the ideal one. I recommend this movie with my eyes closed because for me it doesn't have any flaws. It's characters, the performance of the actors, the way the director tells the story, the script it self and the end are perfect.
