The beginning of this 2004 Brazilian drama anticipates a paranoid thriller like Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window or Suspicion: a 65-year-old divorcee (Fernanda Montenegro), living alone in Rio's Copacabana and participating in a neighborhood watch, witnesses what appears to be a murder in a flat across the street. Once she gets involved with the suspect, a retired judge, the movie fails to generate much suspense, but that emerges as the real point: writer-director Marcos Bernstein is more interested in how a melodramatic imagination can distort reality, a concept he explores with charm and tact. In Portuguese with subtitles. 98 min.
