Goes deeper than you think
25 January 2015 | by lsorbdSee all my reviews

Being advertised as a standard Brazilian, apparently brainless rom- com, this may be one of the few nation-release movies worth the ticket.

Characthers seem really one-dimensional at the start, but, as the story goes, they are fast-paced developed. The three-woman-conflict seem a little forced at most situations, but it perfectly converges into something thoughtful towards the end.

Ingrid Guimarães, known as one of the best (and most original) Latin comedians, makes room for Suzana Pires (a nice performance as the naughty lover) and Tatá Werneck, who gives her sharp-tongue, Christian Maria some extra layers of originality. Fabiana Karla, as a stereotyped lesbian, adds some efficient extra comic relief.

Short, but using most of its running time smartly, the Saback- Spadaccini screenplay may be one of the wisest ever written. It drives the public into the exact wrong conclusions they wanted to induce when it wants.

Problems are few, but they resonate during the movie. Some jokes are really country-ish, as it happens to most of movies made in Brazil. While it makes the movie a little misunderstood if seen with subtitles, it becomes no less enjoying. And the obsessive use of Pharrell's "Happy" may be one of the few mistakes, making it look like they couldn't license more songs (it plays 4-5 times during the movie).

While the promo material advertises it as a Latin "The Other Woman (2014)", it goes way further than the Cameron Diaz-driven comedy. Its hidden psychological background may be the best thing about this motion picture. It goes a little darker - and a lot deeper.
