Dark, Cruel and Realistic Tale
3 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

When the girl Clara (Isabelle Ribas) is kidnapped from the daycare, her mother Sylvia (Fabiula Nascimento) goes to the police station to report the missing child. The chief inspector interrogates Sylvia and learns that her husband Bernardo (Milhem Cortaz) is an enforcer in a bus company. The low-middle class couple does not have any possessions; therefore they do not believe their daughter has been abducted for money. Then he interrogates the owner of the daycare that explains that she received a phone call from Sylvia telling to deliver Clara to a neighbor that the girl knew very well. When Bernardo arrives, he accuses the twenty-two year-old Rosa (Leandra Leal) of kidnapping his daughter. He discloses to the Chief Inspector that Rosa and he had had a love affair and the police detectives bring Rosa to the station to be interrogated and she tells that a woman forced her to kidnap the girl. As long as the interrogation goes on, it is disclosed a dark story of betrayal, jealousy and revenge.

"O Lobo Atrás da Porta", a.k.a. "A Wolf at the Door", is a dark and cruel but realistic tale of betrayal, jealousy, unrequited love and revenge. We are living right in this moment in Rio de Janeiro an investigation where a pregnant pharmacist was found totally burned and almost impossible to be identified. "O Lobo Atrás da Porta" is basically supported by a believable story, excellent screenplay that keeps the attention of the viewers until the last scene and magnificent direction and performance. It is indeed a remarkable Brazilian film. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Lobo Atrás da Porta" ("The Wolf Behind the Door")
