Storyline

Camila (Leandra Leal) has a great passion; writing . Intense and courageous, she seeks to create for herself an existence complex enough that she can write about it. She writes compulsively on a blog, but this also makes her isolated and can only see two options in life: to kill or find the great love - whichever comes first.

Painfully brilliant
31 August 2011 | by carol_chassotSee all my reviews

This is a movie unlike most movies I've seen. It portrays a kind of character that you don't see much in Brazilian films - a deeply anguished young middle class woman, with writing aspirations and a desire for intensity. You don't know exactly why she's so miserable and where her anguish comes from, but you feel it deeply with her. She's trying to find meaning for her meaningless life, and she searches everywhere she can, even if she might get hurt. When she does get hurt, she aches but goes on to the next try. I guess she's one of those people that prefer to be in pain than to feel nothing at all. Ultimately, it's the writing that helps her keep going by turning the despair into something beautiful.

It's a great movie, well constructed, with a very strong lead character and an interesting plot, but the overwhelming factor really comes from the actress, Leandra Leal. She is fearless, brave enough to bare her soul and her body for this performance. I'd say it's a great film for anyone that is acquainted with their own dark places.
