In Rio de Janeiro, the sensitive Pedro worships his wife Marina and expects to have a conventional married life with children. His next door neighbor Vitoria, who is married with a rude detective, dreams on the romanticism of Pedro and listens to him through the wall between her kitchen and his living room. When Marina discloses to Pedro that she is pregnant of her German lover and leaves Pedro, he becomes depressed, but his best friend Carlos convinces him to have sex with many women. However Pedro has a breakdown; quits his job; and decides to stay alone. One night, the beautiful and sexy neighbor Amanda knocks on Pedro's front door and asks for a cup of sugar. They immediately fall in love for each other and Pedro recovers the meaning of his life; but Carlos discovers that Amanda exists only in Pedro's imagination and that his friend is actually disturbed. When Pedro finds the truth, he becomes confused and without sense of reality. Meanwhile Vitoria's husband dies and her sister ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Funny, but very predictable
17 June 2009 | by misalimaSee all my reviews

The director Cláudio Torres, writer and director from Redentor(2004), joins to the Globo Filmes Studio and, unfortunately, brings to the cine screens, just another romantic comedy. But, with Selton Melo and Luana Piovanni, this takes a different way. Clever and fast, the movie is very hot. Piovanni shows her very gorgeous curves, with lingeries and dresses a little bit short. If your girlfriend don't slap you in the face, you will be lucky.

Of course, with Globo Filmes in the credits, you know how is it going to end. Like Claudio Torres said "I wanna do a movie that people will see, like and laugh. Not for the festivals, but for the people." That's enough for me.
