Great coming of age drama
We don't have enough coming of age foreign dramas that are actually good, but this one hits hard. Typical Brazilian story from the 1980s: weird teenage girl meets weird teenage boy, cool gay uncle with AIDS, patronising father, rich kids more atatched to the maid than to their own parents; all of it without overbearing clichés. Very well-written film.
