In this steamy Brazilian drama, SпїЅo Paulo is a hotbed for intrigue amongst the young, restless and alive. A freespirited actress who leaves her devoted provincial boyfriend behind to make it in the big city, Marina (Sylvia Laurenco) dives into the big city's nightlife-driven energy. She finds herself infatuated with the club chanteuse (Danni Carlos) who croons Radiohead songs for the benefit of a jaded clientele. But her flatmates, too, find themselves seduced into liaisons variably romantic and risky.

i like all of the loose ends the bits & pieces that don't fit together_life isn't tidy_some of it seems a bit lame & i grew impatient with a character or two_but it's worth while_ Sao Paulo looks great & i think the club scenes could have been more lively_not much energy there

The lyrics for "Nature Boy" might be read before viewing the film, or perhaps better, after. The film took me back to the few lonely years when finding myself alone, I was desperately to love and be loved. It finally came to me that searching in tat way, I usually met others as needy as I was. Love came to me only after I started taking care of myself, accepting myself, and then it was possible to survive even when there were some who could not love me for who I am. The film's sadness is real, the loneliness and the pain is real, but I wish there had been a movement toward hope.

Thrown together.

Not a lesbian movie and very disappointed that it was categorized as such.

Undeveloped characters, but overall a good emotionally jarring drama.

interesting story about human connection and disconnection and how fragile we really are........
