When her husband tells her in a voicemail that he’s leaving forever, Violeta heads for Porto Alegre, determined to find him. Unable to get a plane, she finds herself instead slowly getting in touch with her identity, whether wandering the streets of Rio de Janeiro or dancing by herself in a club to “Maniac,” in a funny and poignant nod to Flashdance. On the beach at night she meets a young father and daughter, two similarly bruised souls, and spends a few gentle and caring hours with them, drawing some strength to move forward with her life. Director Karim Aïnouz has won international praise and multiple awards for a string of films starting with Madam Sata (2002). He gets a powerful and nuanced lead performance from Alessandra Negrini as Violeta; heartthrob Thiago Martins and the charming young Camila Amado, as the young father and daughter, lend outstanding support. DP Mauro Pinheiro creates inspired visual parallels between the ocean, the luminescent city streets, and the characters’ inner turmoil in this thoughtful, beautifully crafted, and emotionally rewarding film.
