    It will just always sort of turn out alright

    It’s like the high ways and main roads in Brasil, life just doesn’t
    pass in such a fast pace as in many other countries. People take the
    time to actually feel, think, talk, party, eat, drink and share
    emotions. This movies tells a beautiful story of strangers meeting each
    other and because of how life turns to roll out they become connected
    in all kind of ways. The cinematography, the acting, the story, the
    music and sounds are all poetically built up to a plot that gives me a
    nice (movie quote:) ”crocodile feeling” inside.

    Is this movie the best I have seen? Certainly not! But it’s that
    feeling of a certain saudade feeling but in a happy, warm, fuzzy kind
    of way that is brought to you with the tail of ”life happens, but it
    will just always sort of turn out alright” what makes this movie so
    special to me. I feel connected to this world of people and feelings
    and surroundings and culture that I don’t belong to as I was born to a
    Dutch family in The Netherlands. I don’t know what it is, but I feel
    saudades when I think of my disconnection with my world and the
    connection I do feel with Brasil and it’s people (been there for a
    month, amongst others, but especially with one of my dearest Brazilian
    friend). This movie brings the same feeling to me. I loved that.

    Nice road trip movie

    Enjoyed this movie on an airplane flight, and it’s indeed a good flick
    for a flight. There are several elements going on in this movie, but
    it’s not complex either: the relationship of a single father with his
    growing son, the relationships of four female co-workers, the pending
    marriage of one of the co-workers, and various love stories past and
    present. The scenery (the coast of São Paulo) is delightful and the
    movie maintains a light but never frivolous tone. The cast is
    excellent, across the board, from the young 11 year old boy, to his
    father, to the four female telemarketers. A quite enjoyable though not
    life changing movie.

    Light and beautiful

    I was delighted and surprised with this movie. Beautifully shot in
    different parts of Brazil and the actors did such a great job. A mix of
    love stories with a touch of comedy. Great taste in picking the songs.
    Not a typical South American movie but a very todays’ blend with the
    help of cell phones in the middle of nowhere to solve a broken parent’s
    relationship; and the hope and vision of a young couple’s insecure
    wedding plan.
