Vincent Cassel has a midlife crisis in Brazil...

Adrfit review

Vincent Cassel’s family unravels under the sun in this sensitively acted Brazilian drama.

Eldest daughter Filipa has discovered boys, but her sexual awakening gets put on hold when she begins to harbour suspicions about her father.

Newcomer Laura Neiva gives Filipa a yearning watchfulness and Cassel impresses with his fluent Portuguese and the fragility of his midlife crisis.

Director Heitor Dhalia seems unfussed about bringing insight or surprise to a familiar story, but it's awash with sultry indolence and vivid detail.
