My Old Addiction

Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Paulista (Quanto Dura O Amor?)


(out of 5)

A young woman dreams of making it in the big world of acting, leaving her boyfriend and her small town behind and moving to the bustle of Sao Paolo. She shares an apartment with an elegant lawyer, then at night frequents a bar at which she meets a beautiful singer with self-destructive tendencies with whom she falls in love. Meanwhile, her roommate has begun an office romance with a handsome co-worker, and struggles with the difficulty of whether or not to reveal her secret past to him. This tender, extremely well-acted piece plays in a minor key and is never overwhelmingly impressive, but it goes down smooth and its unforced, unpretentious ending is thoroughly appreciable.
