Storyline

The talented photographer Natalie is having financial difficulties in New York. Her friend and agent Julia finds a two day job in Boston for US$ 20,000.00, and the reluctant Natalie accepts the work due to her need of money. When she arrives, she finds that she was hired by her arrogant gay brother Roy, a successful designer. Natalie has broken the relationship and they have not seen each other for ten years. When she finishes her assignment, Roy asks her to stay one more day for his birthday party, and after that he tells her that he has AIDS. Natalie stays with him and along his last days, their resentments change to fraternal love. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Roy: Have you ever seen it snow on the ocean?
Natalie: I don't think so.
Roy: It's the sound of the snow, really. It's as if each individual flake has its own... voice. A hiss as it hits the water, and then this whisper as it tames the ocean's roar... peacefully. It's my favorite Christmas thing.

Excellent
11 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I knew next to nothing about this film and rented mainly because I have loved Kiefer Sutherland since I first saw him in Stand by me (and that's a difficult movie to love him in)

His performance is simply perfection, never becoming too sympathetic, never losing touch of the character. Oddly, what has stayed with me is the flashback scene of him applying makeup on his dead mother's face, lipstick shaking in his hands.

This is a complex and beautiful film, focussing on the relationship between brother and sister, rather than the glamorous world they are both working in or the mystery of who killed their mother.

I know I must see this film again. I strongly recommend it.
