Storyline

Julia is a 35-year-old English Literature teacher struggling with depression as she tries to get her life back together again after her long, intense love affair with Antonia. Feeling totally abandoned after she and her enigmatic girlfriend broke up, Julia is thrown into a desperate, painful process. Her life and her values have been tinged with unbearable melancholy and her life's measure seems reduced to out-of-focus fragments of her memories. Her inner turmoil and conflicts hamper a process now made necessary - that of readapting to her new life. It is impossible for her to disguise her pain when she attempts to narrate emotions.

This is so Brazilian...
8 December 2016 | by mariobevilaquaSee all my reviews

If you are Brazilian, if you know Brazil, or at least a Brazilian, you will understand the film. I love this movie. It is not always an easy task to let someone out of your life. At some point in the film, Julia says, "It is not possible to live without life". This is exactly the dramatic way of life that is characteristic of "Latinos." There is a kind of poetry in Julia's fight.

The movie is full of symbols: the girl in red, the Garden in the new house, the soundtrack (I love it).

I love the fact that Antonia is present throughout the film (Julia's ex-girlfriend), although we never know her.

Ana Paula Arósio, Murillo Rosa, Arieta Corrêa, Bianca Comparato, Natalia Lage and Pierri Baitelli are very close and do very well.

I recommend this movie. It's an introspective story. We went through all the suffering of the broken relationship and its repercussion.

It is a shame that films in Portuguese language are not well known around the world.
