This 140-minute Brazilian drama is an epic and touching tale of two sisters torn apart. In 1950s Rio de Janeiro, Eurídice, 18, and Guida, 20, are inseparable, but their dreams soon take them away from each other, from their conservative family, and from Brazil.
After they are separated, each one of them believes the other is achieving her dreams when often the opposite was happening. Family betrayal, silence, and a suffocating social climate shatter the aspiration of the sisters but also highlight their strength.
One of the best and most underrated Brazilian movies of recent years. Extraordinary work where its realistic characters live and struggle in the super sexist Brazil of the 50s, with the diva Fernanda Montenegro topping off this masterpiece! -1 people liked this review.
