Winner of the Cannes Un Certain Regard Prize, this irresistible “tropical melodrama” tells the story of two sisters, forcibly separated through conservatism and fate.
In Rio de Janeiro, 1950, Eurídice, 18, and Guida, 20, are two inseparable sisters living at home with their conservative parents. Although immersed in a traditional life, each one nourishes a dream: Eurídice of becoming a renowned pianist, Guida of finding true love. In a dramatic turn, they are separated by their father and forced to live apart. They take control of their separate destinies, while never giving up hope of finding each other. Brazilian director Karim Ainouz (Madame Sata
, Praia do Futuro
, SFF 2014) is known for his sensual, visually resplendent films and here brings his skillset to a heart-wrenching story, spanning decades, of two strong women who never give up hope.
