      Audience Member I wouldn't say that this film is bad neither good, but I would say that it is a nice entertaining film. It is not a silly film, it's just that I am a little bit tired of the same fucking love conflicts. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It's really not a bad film, but I kinda missed the point of the film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member 2004 Seattle International Film Festival Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A melhor coisa do filme é a fotografia imitando fotos antigas, na parte dos anos 80. A trilha sonora é interessante de um ponto de vista antropológico/histórico. Além desses aspectos, nada mais é interessante nesse filme. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's still original if you're the first one to do it well. American directors have fucked up this story many times.
