Alice Junior is a fiction feature film, a teen comedy that tells the story of Alice, a 17 years old teenager transgender (with a lot of personality!), that moves from Recife, a big town from Northeast of Brazil, to a fictional small town called Araucárias do Sul, from South of Brazil. Do you remember your first kiss? I bet you do. And it would turn into a good story? So imagine the first kiss of a transgender teenager, who leaves the big city and moves to a conservative small town in the south of Brazil, and is registered in a school that seems to have come out of the dark ages. All of it because of the perfumer Jean search, Alice's father, for the aromatic essence of the legendary Imperial Flower, exclusive of the region. This is the story of Alice Junior, a transgender girl full of life, who wants to give her first kiss, but first, she just want to be who she really is. Written by Beija Flor Filmes

Wow! Just wow...
24 October 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

When I sat down to watch the 2019 movie "Alice Júnior" from writers Luiz Bertazzo, Adriel Nizer and director Gil Baroni, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. But it being a relatively new movie and a movie that I hadn't already seen, of course I found the time to sit down to watch it.

I didn't know what the story was about, and let me just tell you that I was more than genuinely entertained by what writers Luiz Bertazzo and Adriel Nizer managed to conjure up for the storyline and script for this movie. This was a very wholehearted story, and one that you easily got submerged into.

And of course, the very detailed and fleshed out character gallery definitely helped bring the movie to life on the screen in a fulfilling and believable manner. Especially because the characters were so nuanced and layered.

Which leads me to the cast. Sure, it is one thing to have interesting characters, but a movie also need a good and skilled cast of actors and actresses to bring the characters to life on the screen. And "Alice Júnior" definitely had that. I was really impressed with lead actress Anna Celestino Mota's performance as Alice Júnior. She was just phenomenal in this movie.

There as just something profound and beautiful about this movie, its storyline and characters, and it panned out nicely together on the screen for a very enjoyable movie experience.

I will say that there is a good flow and continuation to the storyline and the progression and growth of the characters. I didn't find a single dull moment throughout the course of the movie.

My rating of "Alice Júnior" is a certain eight out of ten stars. I was more than genuinely entertained by this movie. And if you get the chance to watch this 2019 movie from director Gil Baroni, you definitely should do so. This is a truly unique and beautiful movie.
