Bossa Nova, for those who dont know, is a brazilian kind of music. You will listen to a lot of Bossa Nova songs during this movie. It is a great lihght romantic comedy that shows in a fantastic way the search for the perfect ''match'', whether you are searching for it or not. It is worth seeing! For the beautiful shots of Rio de Janeiro and specially for the brilliant way the director conducts this love comedy, using a quick timimg, great sense of humor and excellent actors.Was this review helpful?

The scenes on the cover are from a subplot of the story and are not representative of this wonderful movie. The R-rating is mainly based on some scenes where Mary Ann (Amy Irving) teaches Acácio (Alexandre Borges) the kind of expressions which might prove useful in an English soccer match. The movie is, on the whole, a gentle, romantic comedy. The story follows an ensemble cast of truly likeable people, played by wonderfully talented actors, whose lives intertwine with the two main characters, Mary Ann and Pedro Paulo (Antônio Fagundes). The story is predictable and almost everything works out in the end. Besides the great cast, there are 2 other stars of this movie: an idealized Rio where every view is a vista and the soundtrack. Language also plays an important role in the story with people interacting in both English and Portuguese, sometimes changing from sentence to sentence in a scene. It sounds confusing but it all works just beautifully. Get this in DVD; the tape does not do it justice.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This movie is interesting for those who enjoy seeing the scenery of Brazil and hearing the Portuguese language. This is a very sensual, yet classy film with an entriguing, yet well-thought-out plot.....It's the kind of new-age romance-comedy film that any age group would like...One thing that is good about this film is that there is enough switchoff between the Portuguese and English, that any group of people can watch it without getting bored...Once I saw it the first time, I couldn't cut it off...it's that greatWas this review helpful?
