A densely observed and superbly acted portrait of a woman of a certain age.

The Guardian

Sonia Braga delivers a great performance as Clara, a 65-year-old widow and last remaining resident of the Aquarius, one of the few buildings of its age and character that remains in a rapidly changing seaside Brazilian neighborhood.

As the redevelopment company mounts pressure on Clara she stubbornly declines, pledging to leave her lifelong home only upon death. The resulting confrontation brings about a sinister campaign of harassment and intimidation pusing Clara’s determination to its very limit.

A rich and human film about the disintegration of Brazilian society.
