A Boring Story Very Difficult to Be Understood
20 November 2003 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Márcia (Barbara Laage) is a married woman with a son. She finds that her husband has an affair. She cheats him too and decides to go to Itaipava (a Brazilian city on the hills) with her son. A black horse, free in the fields, attracts her. In the end, she comes back home and memories come back while watching the footage made by her son.

In my opinion, this movie is boring, specially because the characters are not well developed. I have not caught on the intention of the director in such plot. The soundtrack, with a jazz band, is very monotonous. Although being an expensive DVD, this film has not been restored. The Brazilian distributor Cinemagia has just release a box of Walter Hugo Khouri composed of three titles: 'As Amorosas' (which I watched two days ago), 'O Corpo Ardente' (which I watched yesterday) and 'Noite Vazia' (which I intend to watch today). Although having a terrible quality of sound and image, the photography in black & white is very beautiful, having beautiful actresses in the cast and showing beautiful landscapes. One situation is not clear for me: in accordance with the information on the cover of this DVD, its runtime would be 98 min. The DVD has 83:25 min. In accordance with the information of IMDb, it would be 85 min. And in accordance with the Brazilian video and DVD guide 'Guia de Video e DVD 2003', page 161, it would be 133 min. Therefore, this movie is polemical since its runtime. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Corpo Ardente" ("The Heat Body")
