Fifth about The Seventh

The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?)

Que Horas Ela VoltaThe Second Mother: Anna Muylaert tells a beautiful, touching story, which has the added benefit of being relevant at this time and age and show how people have evolved (or not) recently. If the film drags a bit early on, it’s because the most crucial and important character doesn’t show up at the get-go. Acting in general is well-modulated, and Regina Casé is wonderful (if a bit broad), but the one cast member that truly runs away with it is Camila Márdila (Karine Teles does her best with a character that is somewhat out of tune with the rest of the film). The film is visually unmemorable, but it’s not supposed to be.
