Opposite Lives tells the story of Miguel (Leo Rosa), a young rich man of a traditional family, and Joana (Maytê Piragibe), a student and tourist guide who lives in a slum. Although dating an elegant and rich fashion designer, Erínia (Lavínia Vlasak), Miguel and Joana fall in love for each other and they decide to get married. Everything goes well until Joana's old boyfriend, Jackson (Heitor Martinez) leaves prison, and decides that he wants to date her again.

the best novel in many years - and it's not Globo!!
26 March 2007 | by alexandre_rdcSee all my reviews

This novel already can enter in history! Congratulations for Alexandre Avancini and Marcílio Moraes for their great job. The reality of the people from the slums, corruption of politics, police, the faith of poor people suffers with the traffic and the saga of Miguel and Joana, two people of different social group who fall in love and their love is perturbed by the trafficker Jefferson, the chief of traffic on the Torto's slum.The cast is excellent, the direction and the music. I like very much to see Marcelo Serrado on the role of Delegado Nogueira, Maite Piragibe making Joana, she's very pretty and good actress. Léo Rosa is a good surprise too. Congratulations for everybody and success! You're better than all Globo's novels together!! Thank you!
