Storyline

In Barcelona, Valére is very attached to her French grandmother Marie Tasso and likes to stay with her. While discussing sex with Val, Marie advises her that it would be important to jot her life experience down and Val decides to write a diary. Val recalls her promiscuous love life and her lovers since her first sexual experience when she was 15-years-old. When Val loses her job in a downsizing, she is simultaneously informed that Marie had a heart attack and she visits her granny one last time who dies. Val looks for a job and when she is interviewed by an executive called Jaime, she falls in love for the first time. However Jaime is not good in bed. They move in together to a magnificent apartment and Val believes she has found the man of her life. Val gets a job with a gay Italian called Harry at a fashion house but Jaime becomes jealous and changes his behavior. Val decides to leave Jaime when she gets pregnant and he does not recognize the baby as his own. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

In the beginning Valerie says that she lost her virginity in 1993 and some minutes later she says "since that passed 14 years". and in the scene where her grand mom is dead there is an engraving on her grave "Marie Tasso 1934-2006" - implying there are only 13 years between 1993 and 2006.

A woman learns about herself through various adventures and memories.
9 August 2011 | by billcurry-1See all my reviews

This movie is for adults. That being said, it's about as far from pornography as one can get. There are sex scenes, but these are intertwined with the emotions of the characters, particularly Val, the protagonist. The scenes range from the subdued to the violent and one would have to be sick be aroused by them. It's too bad the film probably won't be distributed in the U.S. because of the MPAA's allergy to nudity. Anyway, the story is fairly unique, something of a modern bildungsroman in which a woman sets out to find herself. And, through a number a picaresque episodes, she either does or doesn't (note: no spoiler here). The movie is simply unique. That's why I'm giving it a fairly high rating. Just one warning: keep it away from kids and adults who feel that nudity and sex should be swept under the rug regardless of their necessity for the emotional impact of the story. One last thing: I was impressed by the acting.
