Film version of the hit play, the film follows the misadventures of Dona Herminia, a middle-aged, retired mother of three whose biggest concern are her kids. Well, used to be, now that they're practically grown up, they don't exactly need their mothers often overwhelming attention, which is the cause of much confusion.Written by
It's been a while since I last saw a Brazilian comedy. The fact is that most of comedies in my country just don't add up, they are just generic Globo TV "quality" formulas that are simply awful!! By word of mouth I decided to ignore my skepticism, take a deep breath and check this one out, and guess what? I had fun! I mean... I didn't watch the most brilliant comedy of my life, and it's still pretty generic, but it was better than most comedies that comes out in Brazil! There are flaws, and situations that just makes you cringe, but in general terms, I laughed, I had a good time with it.
It's the kind of movie that illustrates the everyday problematic Brazilian family, there are stereotypes of Brazilian people in every direction you look at. So yeah, that's why I let that one pass. I could easily identify some very regular situations that I already seen around in my city with other families and I have to admit, the characters were mostly very likable, specially the mother! So yeah, it's a nice Brazilian comedy. Again, you won't have the laugher of your life, but you'll still have a good time with your friends and relatives.
