Warm portrait of a Brazilian family
10 January 2019 | by Sebastien02See all my reviews

This movie beautifully describes the day to day life of a lower middle class family, in the surroundings of Rio de Janeiro. The love these people share brightens up their lives, keeping their worries away. The story focuses on Irene, a generous and courageous mother, who does not only take care of her 4 young boys and her husband, but also temporarily accommodates her sister and her child. This protective woman has mixed feelings when she learns her eldest son wants to move to Europe. Whereas he looks forward to being independent, she fears losing him. And their difference in perception creates funny situations. This film is full of humanity. It's a nice and positive moment of cinema.
