A piece of life
27 September 2017 | by pacolopezpersonalSee all my reviews

This film has no beginning or end because it is itself a piece of life of two friends and therefore almost real. The action takes place in Brazil but could have happened anywhere else; it is a realistic story in which no older person appears, (except briefly by Skype the mother of one of the protagonists and the conversation is soon over) the film therefore is composed of mixed characters of different ages without family ties. They share illusions, problems, loves and disappointments, joys and sorrows. At an age when many people are not sure of anything yet and abandon what they have achieved, others see in what they have abandoned an opportunity of a new life and a future. Like the fable of the old philosopher there are those who gathered up what others throw away. This film with very good interpretations gets you to become one of the protagonists. A third friend.
