Olmo & the Seagull is a intimate movie by Petra Costa, she already has proved her quality on her first movie, Elena, and this one is another good step forward on her career. Olivia Corsini is the star of this piece, showing a amazing performance that won me through the movie, Serge Nicolai showed a good work to. I would recommend this movie to anyone i know and i would recommend follow the work of Petra Costa, a promise of the Brazilian cinema. A great piece about motherhood, work, self discover and the things we have to let go when having a child.
