This has all those 'misses' of life: Mishaps, missteps, mismanagement, misbehaviour...and, mistakes...all set to a searing and scorching soundtrack.
Rafael Gomes' writing is a philosophical ballad to love...it pinches, pokes and resonates way beyond what many writers hope to achieve...when addressing love's bewildering complexities. His three main characters are - quintessentially - the three [main] types of love...personified. It's so clever...because, it's so damn accessible [and melodic]...even though love's confusion reigns supreme throughout.
Vulnerabilities are worn on the sleeve, hearts are torn apart, guards are razed and guards are raised...oooh to be young and in-and-out of required, requited and unrequited love! It's head-spinning...but, that's love.
And...love changes...as we mature...that's just part of its nature...and that dynamic is the main thrust of the film...it really is an emotional and joyous thing to witness.
All actors do a mighty fine job...but, Victor Mendes' charisma is absolutely electrifying. He is haphazardly adorable.
But...this is Rafael Gomes' film...on a tiny budget, he produced a credible film with might, force and gentility. It really is a case of: When the writing is this good, it would be nigh on impossible to make a bad film!
A fantastic film...thank you.
