  • Summary: Suspicious minds and autumnal romance cross paths in this Brazilian film from director Marcos Bernstein. (Strand Releasing)
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 18
  2. Negative: 0 out of 18
  1. More love story than thriller, with the mystery providing only slack tension and the December-December romance that ultimately develops between Regina and Camargo crackling with drama and sexual tension aplenty.
  2. 80
    A smart, quietly moving film.
  3. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Don't see the movie if you can't handle two rather sexy senior citizens threatening to meet in body and mind.
  4. An absorbing new spin on the ingenious "Rear Window" concept, with poignant comments on aging in modern society.
  5. Writer-director Marcos Bernstein is more interested in how a melodramatic imagination can distort reality, a concept he explores with charm and tact.
  6. Reviewed by: Russell Doyle
    A diverting, if unspectacular, Brazilian drama centered on an aging female detective.
  7. Reviewed by: Joshua Land
    Co-writer and first-time director Marcos Bernstein (who also co-scripted the Montenegro-starring Central Station) drowns the film in anesthetizing atmospherics and hot Brazilian bodies, blunting the energy of his septuagenarian star's performance.
