21 September 2008 | Nazi_Fighter_David
| A wonderful little film from Brazil
The acting, especially by Sonia Braga, is outstanding… The film is quite sensual, revealing, comic, even at times tragic... A warm, friendly film that takes its time developing its view of the erotic attraction between the sexes…

The story is quite simple, transparent even... A member of the Brazilian upper-class has a bra factory that just went bankrupt and a beautiful blonde wife that just left him… He revels in self-pity in his expensive penthouse apartment… He finally goes out, gets drunk, and ends up in the middle of a lover's angry dispute… He asks the woman in the altercation to come up to his place, and surprisingly she accepts… She pretends to be a whore, and a comic repartee comes as a result, ending in a impudent erotic affair…

For a mainstream film, the sexual encounters are quite graphic, but do not dwell… Instead, the scenes are shot from a distance, rapidly and teasingly, with numerous close-ups of the lovers' faces twisting in ecstasy…

The cinematography is appealing, colorful, and contains a lot of black space for effect… It creates a world filled with shadows and only an occasional bright spot… The bedroom is bathed in golden light
