      Three Summers

      Released Nov 27, 2020 1h 33m Comedy Drama List
      91% Tomatometer 11 Reviews Over a trio of summers, a caretaker for luxury condominiums (Regina Casé) relies on her resourcefulness and her eye for opportunity to take advantage of whatever comes her way, in Sandra Kogut’s (Campo Grande) humorous and inventive episodic feature. Showcasing the rare talents of Brazilian acting legend Regina Casé -- star of The Second Mother and TIFF ’00 selection Me You Them -- the latest feature from director Sandra Kogut (Campo Grande, TIFF ’15) is a brilliant comedy about gross class disparity and the infinite resourcefulness of those who can never take anything for granted. Casé plays Madá, the fifty-something caretaker for a cluster of luxury beachside condos owned by a wealthy Rio de Janeiro family. Unfolding over the course of three consecutive summers -- 2015 to 2017 -- the film follows Madá as she invests in a roadside snack kiosk while tending to the every need of her condescending employers, becomes a bystander in a major money-laundering scandal, and eventually launches a whole new career. With every dizzying new turn of events, Madá manages to retain her high spirits, her sense of loyalty to those who deserve it -- and her eagle eye for opportunity.

      David Stratton The Australian The first section is excellent, with the celebrations confidently staged by co-writer and director Sandra Kogut. The 2016 episode is intriguing for the rapidity with which the very rich from Part One have fallen from grace... Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 3, 2021 Full Review Mark Keizer Variety A flabby and barely involving screenplay... misses too many opportunities to resonate in a meaningful way with the working class. Sep 7, 2019 Full Review Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter Kogut, who co-wrote the script with Iana Cossoy, displays a keen eye for satirizing Brazil's rigid class structures and how people like Madá try to find their own piece of the pie within them. Sep 7, 2019 Full Review Pere Vall Fotogramas The story prefers to celebrate Madá's tenderness and illusion. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Oct 18, 2021 Full Review Carlos Marañón Cinemanía (Spain) A new tribute to a generation of women who have taken care of other people's homes at the cost of sacrificing their own. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 2, 2021 Full Review Sarah Ward Concrete Playground An involving character study of a woman continually placed at the mercy of others, and just as constantly battling to retain what control she can over her own destiny.
