Storyline

Inês finds out her brother came back from Australia. She wants to be a surfer like him so she runs away from home. Rafael surfs at Guincho like he wants to die. Surfing no longer matters to him, only the sky, as if he searched for it underwater. Inês realizes that, despite what her mother said, her brother was in a convent, and that he is returning. She has no one to stay with her at Guincho. Returning home to her mother and back to school, she feels lost. She can't live like she used to anymore. At the convent, Rafael can't find the peace he was looking for and he's still at this side of Resurrection. Their mother doesn't know, but she is truly the one who has reached the limit. Perhaps are the limits what holds a family together?

If there ever was an empty movie, this is it.
17 September 2011 | by vrs003See all my reviews

This is the 2nd time in my life that I've walked out of a movie.

Forty minutes into showing, nothing was happening. Except (5 minutes) shots of a monastery, (20 minutes of the beach and the brother surfing, sister sulking (10 minutes). The five or six dialogs are devoid of any emotion; I was cringing in my seat. These can't be actors?

Indie movie this is not. What it is... is a waste of time and money. How dare TIFF select this for the festival.

As an avid film lover, I've never been insulted by the emptiness of this movie. It's not even stupid, it has nothing to offer. NADA.

Sapinho, who also wrote the script, has no business sitting behind the director's chair.
