Four estranged sisters—a stiff housewife, a divorcee living in Paris, an unattached single addicted to sex and plastic surgery, and a lesbian graduate student—gather for the funeral of their mother and bicker over the sale of her apartment in Daniel Filho's fluffy 2001 comedy set in Rio de Janeiro. The script, which is filled with Dr. Phil psychologizing and Oprah moments, turns the men into buffoons and opportunists—obstacles to sisterly solidarity. The women are fun to watch when they're being bitchy, but the badly executed farcical end makes a travesty of any feminist message. In Portuguese with subtitles. 93 min.
