Irene, 38 years old, is married to Klaus, 45. They live in Petrópolis, a small city on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, and have four children. Fernando (16); Rodrigo (10), and the twins (5). The couple has been struggling for years to finish building their new house. Irene works as an independent seller while finishing her studies to get her high-school diploma. Klaus runs a small copy shop where he also sells books. Fernando, their eldest son, plays handball. After being the highlight of the season, the boy is invited to join a professional team in Germany and will leave his parents house much sooner than expected. Among the everyday issues of their family's life, Irene will have to deal with the early separation from Fernando and adapt to a new life without him.Written by
The life of a Brazilian middle-class family, where we see the joys and the sadness of everyday life. One of the best dramatic comedies that I have seen in a while. The plot is very well structured, the main premise is very well aligned with the secondary ones, so there's no uninteresting moments in the film. The photography, despite having nothing new, is very interesting, with some shots that will remain in my memory. Karine Telles plays an extraordinary role, and Adriana Esteves is a really good supporting actress as well.
