Joana de Verona,
Guilherme and Sofia, brother and sister, grow up sharing experiences and slowly discovering their sexuality. The thing that Sofia doesn't know is how far Guilherme will go to keep her inside his own perverse, dark and perfect circle.
Joana de Verona,
The film is shot in exotic locations, the characters are strong but they don't leave any impact on me. The director i think was little confused between a documentary and film. The story is weak, not so gripping or sentimental as it could have been. It had all the potential to be a good love story but lost in the waves. The way the characters were handled is good, right from the lady in the kitchen to the leading lady. The theme is also fine, but its not so clear about the marriage which actually is very important in the context of the film. I really liked the climax of the movie it was so shuttle and cheers to the director for not dramatizing it.
