Is it possible to unite the genius music by Tom Jobim & cinema? The answer is simple: without any problems! Moreover, a perfect plot, a great shooting & a proper film message will create a completely incredible masterpiece. As, for example, it has happened with the American-Brazilian romantic comedy “Bossa Nova” made by Bruno Baretto in 2000. The movie has another advantage for English-speaking spectators: half of it is spoken in English.
So, the story so far: “Mary Anne is an American teacher of English who lives & works in Rio. She has two private students: Acacia, a famous soccer player who is going to transfer to England & who flirts with her & Nadine, a young woman experiencing a great Internet romance. Pedro Paolo is a famous advocate who has just separated. He passes through a personal & professional crisis. One day they meet & Bossa Nova begins playing in their hearts”.
No matter that the movie is presented as a romantic comedy, it contains some melodramatic episodes. The music by Tom Jobim sounds through any scene creating particular atmosphere of joy & sadness, hope & despair. It adds some mysterious sense to this simple but profound movie about life and love.
