When an Irresponsible Bitch Loves an Insecure Clumsy Guy
In Rio de Janeiro, the teenagers Lia (Juliana Paes) and Rodrigo (Dan Stulbach) have opposite behaviors and personalities. The clumsy Rodrigo is responsible and good student, while the emancipated Lia is totally irresponsible. They have their first sexual intercourse together on April 23rd, and they schedule to meet each other every year in the same date. Along the years, Rodrigo graduates in engineering and gets married with Clara (Christine Fernandes), having a son. The single mother Lia has a life without any commitment, moves to Paris and comes back to Brazil later. After a comedown, Rodrigo leaves his family and quits his job to live with Lia.
"Mais Uma Vez Amor" is a very bad rip-off of "When Harry Met Sally...". On the contrary of the delightful 1989 American comedy, this tropical romance tells the story of a real bitch and a totally insecure and contradictory guy, capable to love his wife, his son and his profession, but quit his life to have a reckless one, in a typical earlier middle-age crisis. The story has no moral in the end, I did not feel any sympathy for the lead characters and I did not like this movie. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Mais Uma Vez Amor" ("Once Again Love")
