crashing and consuming passion
22 March 2002 | by moralistaSee all my reviews

This is not a typical Brazilian love story, and i would not call it a soap because, but mini-series instead, because it has an incisive plot with no space for "dont matter scenes". This is a love story between a 15 year girl and a 40 year man. At first u may think its a very seen idea, but this series really make u stay in front of your television screen from start to the end. It starts when a 15 years girl, Anita (Mel Lisboa), goes to a small town and starts living in a house where a lover killed her lover, meets a 40 years old writer, Nando(José Mayer) that is in a no inspiration period and they fall in a strange kind of love because Anita thinks its fate placing the 2 dead lovers together again. In this series making love scenes are very real, and it scared and impressed me the realism that Mel Lisboa gave to her character making the role story very believable even if it had an occult and mystical side. Still its a very controversial story, in many ways looks like Adryan Lyne movie Lolita but due to be a mini-series, every detail of characters story is very well explained leaving you no questions about their background. I hope this will pass on rest of Europe and America because its more a love story than a pervert film and Mel Lisboa and José mayer performances deserve to be seen.
