Program Notes

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. A tropical melodrama from the director of Madame Satã.

Critics' Praise

“An absolutely gorgeous film that starts off as a sort of Rio fairytale and then turns into something a little more realistic with its feet on the ground.”
– Amy Nicholson, NPR Los Angeles

“By the end, you will feel like you’ve been somewhere, and you know these people. Guida and Euridice just might stay with you for a long time.”
– Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

“A waking dream, saturated in sound, music and color to match its depth of feeling.”
– Guy Lodge, Variety
