Storyline

Fifteen year ago, Carlos went to the cinema to meet Júlia, his university colleague with whom he was in love. She never showed up. Carlos was left waiting in the lobby alone. While he waits, something happens which will change his life. A scene, an encounter, an unfinished sentence... Something insignificant, but which will determine the character's life. Fifteen years later, we follow three completely different versions of Carlos's life. In one, he is a man divided between the stability of a secure life in a lukewarm marriage, and the growing desire to live a great love affair. In the second, he is homosexual and places passion above all else. In the third possible life, Carlos is a man who hasn't yet discovered love, and lives through successive disastrous relationships in search of the perfect woman. One of them is his real life. Another is not his life. And a third is the life he'd like to lead. Which is his true life ? Written by luiza do brasil

Quotes

Meeting agency's secretary: Intellectual?
Carlos: No way! Cultured, yes! But not intellectual! She should be refined, speak two or three languages, enjoy poetry, jazz and movies... Preferably Woody Allen and Truffaut, if possible.

This story sounds familiar to me.
15 June 2002 | by Dennis MSee all my reviews

Three different stories, or better possible lives, all starting with something insignificant but determining 15 years ago. This script sounds really familiar to me. Watch the marvelous movie from the German director Tom Tykwer 'Lola rennt' (1998) with the tagline: "Every second of every day you're faced with a decision that can change your life." Go see them both!
