Sex, but no cinema

I’ll have to check the original Mexican version. I felt uncompleted as i finished watching this one. I suppose i expected more from the usually intelligent and spontaneous Brazilians. The focus is clearly, no doubt, on sex. So, the device is simple, you place three men and three women on the plot, and create the artificial situation that will motivate a large number of desire, intercourse and voyeur spirit. Both the boys and girls are physically desirable enough to make this trick work, and the performances are quite good (the TV Brazilian soap opera school has its good results). The cultural mood is sex friendly, so this is a good cultural scenario to place a story of this kind.

What didn’t work for me, was everything that could have been made cinematically here, but was just waisted: -The voyeur portion, when men watch women and vice-versa, this has so many good cinema pieces of experimentation that one doesn’t have to be very original to bring it out competently, or at least more engaging. -also the way the several and multiple “affairs” come to unfold is very forced, unnatural. There was clearly the aim on creating those sexual/sensual/comedy bits, but this was not well en formed or cinematically well built. I suppose that was the problem

My evaluation: 2/5 despite this is not a good film, you may spend a good time with it if you forget its various faults. but you have much much better coming from Brazil.
