The separation can also be part of a love story. Rimini, a young translator who ends a 12-year marriage with Sofia, his first girlfriend. The delicacy with which both lead to the separation ends when he begins to date Vera, a 22-year-old model who, upon witnessing Sophie kissing him by force, dies by being run over. A year later, already redone, he marries Carmen, his translation partner. A mysterious amnesia, resulting from the trauma of Vera's death, wipes out of her brain the knowledge of the languages it translates. Helped by Carmen, he tries to adapt to the uncomfortable role of a dependent husband. The birth of his son, Lucius, helps him to revive himself. But the marriage is wrecked when Sofia in a moment of madness, hijacks the baby for a few hours after attracting him to a meeting hotel for a quick sex. He will never again be allowed to approach his son and his ex-wife.Written by
I went to watch the movie last week and I really enjoyed it. It shows how men and women feel a separation after it's done and how difficult it's for them to continue with their lives... Everybody loves, that's cool! The movie let you see how big and obsessive a feeling can get, it talks about trust, love, personal search, the permanence of love in time, growing up, sex and almost brotherhood. The actors were quite good, perhaps the characters were difficult to recreate but I liked the way the did it... I didn't know Ana and when I saw how she felt that character it was great. I think that her face is appropriate for Sofia. I think that the Director is the same who directed Carandiru, isn't him?
