Three parallel story lines, none the least bit convincing, dovetail at the climax of this frothy 2002 Brazilian comedy by Paulo Morelli. A young businessman unwittingly speed-dials his wife on a cell phone while his mistress is climbing all over him, and the line remains open while the adulterers are carjacked by a couple of thugs; meanwhile the businessman's partner, in cahoots with the mistress, sneaks into his office and tries to hack into his on-line bank account. With its flashy style, breezy humor, and Tarantino-style story construction, the film is so clearly modeled on hip American indies that I began to question the point of an international festival. 85 min.
