When Vicente tells Clara the story of the couple that appears in the photographs of the old album, he calls them the Cavalcanti's. Taking into account that Cavalcanti is the surname of one of the pioneers of Brazilian cinema (Alberto Cavalcanti, 1897-1982), the anecdote can be considered as a small tribute to him. See more »

Cannot be deemed a masterpiece but worth watching
I was originally attracted to this movie by the unusual plot (never heard of another movie dealing with someone's past before) and thought that it would be some sort of sci-fi movie but I was pleasantly surprised that it is not.
The script is not error prone. The movie does lacks rhythm at times. However, Lazaro is a superb actor and Alinne does her job very well too.
In summary, it is well worth the short (~1h) plot - after disregarding the countless producers, supporting companies and everyone else that just takes forever at the beginning of every Brazilian movie. As a Brazilian I just feel like I'm paying for it every time I watch a Brazilian movie (and as a matter of fact myself and most Brazilians are, as many of these supporters are state companies or banks). Nevertheless I just felt that money was well spent in this one.
