Bruno (Fabio Porchat) is a young film editor who has just broke up his marriage with Regina, and returned living in his mother's house. Drowned in deep sorrow, something very weird happens in his life: people around him are gradually disappearing. But only for him. Some kind of blindness.Written by
The film editor Bruno (Fábio Porchat) has just separated from his wife Regina (Giovanna Lancellotti) and his best friend and coworker Davi (Marcos Vera) goes with him to a brothel to celebrate the separation. Bruno is temporarily living with his possessive mother (Irene Ravache) and misses Regina. Out of the blue, Bruno can not see persons that are disappearing. His mother sends him to a psychiatrist (Marcelo Valle) while tries experiments with the attendant of a pizzeria (Luis Lobianco) that is invisible for Bruno. Will he recover his capacity to see people?
"Entre Abelhas" is a Brazilian film with an intriguing plot but lost between unfunny comedy and shallow drama in a pretentious mess. The idea of how people are lonely and the others are becoming invisible in the present days without interaction and only contacting through Internet and social networks is not well used and the opportunity of making a good film is lost. Bruno is depressed, obsessed by his ex-wife and isolating from his acquaintances and the world. He contacts only his friend Davi, his mother, the psychologist and his ex-wife Regina, while the other persons are disappearing, one by one. After the death of his mother, his world collapses and he can not see any person. The characters are not well- developed and the cast is completely wasted. The actress Irene Ravache tries to be funny in the role of Bruno's mother but her attitudes are stupid and annoying. The comedian Fábio Porchat is completely lost performing a dramatic role. Marcos Veras is OK in the role of his amoral friend but Luis Lobianco is only silly. There is no empathy between the viewer and the characters and nobody cares what is happening to Bruno. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Entre Abelhas" ("Among Bees")
