Storyline

Fifteen year ago, Carlos went to the cinema to meet Júlia, his university colleague with whom he was in love. She never showed up. Carlos was left waiting in the lobby alone. While he waits, something happens which will change his life. A scene, an encounter, an unfinished sentence... Something insignificant, but which will determine the character's life. Fifteen years later, we follow three completely different versions of Carlos's life. In one, he is a man divided between the stability of a secure life in a lukewarm marriage, and the growing desire to live a great love affair. In the second, he is homosexual and places passion above all else. In the third possible life, Carlos is a man who hasn't yet discovered love, and lives through successive disastrous relationships in search of the perfect woman. One of them is his real life. Another is not his life. And a third is the life he'd like to lead. Which is his true life ? Written by luiza do brasil

A film about love, or maybe about passion
31 October 2002 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

An interesting film, but not a great one. The basic question--"What if...." is always fascinating. This question is not really explored carefully, but it does provide the basis for the plot.

The actors are handsome/beautiful, and the love scenes are artful. However, don't expect gritty Latin American realism. We are shown a Brazil where everyone is attractive, everyone lives in elegant apartments, and there is beauty everywhere. (No slums, no crime, no blemishes.)

Basically, this film is pared down to three love stories--no one worries about work, or social issues, or whether Lula will become President of Brazil. No one talks about anything besides love, or maybe really sexual passion.

Still, this movie is not boring, it is great to look at, and it is honest in it's own limited way. Not worth a special trip, but worth seeing if the opportunity presents itself.
