Rio Sex Comedy: Directed by Jonathan Nossiter. With Charlotte Rampling, Bill Pullman, Irène Jacob, Jérôme Kircher. A group of strangers from different countries end up on Rio’s beaches. Seeking self-fulfillment, they look for answers to existential questions. Yet it isn’t until their different paths cross that they begin to understand why they came.

“I watched this with my Brazilian husband, just back from our honeymoon and feeling u0026quot;saudadeu0026quot; for the city, and we laughed the whole way through.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt feels like a Gore Vidal kind of story, or early Woody Allen, a really enjoyable farce that deftly lampoons stereotypes and, if nothing else, perfectly captures the feeling of standing at the window over the streets and beaches of Rio.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSexy, silly and thoughtful. If you are not Brazilian, or maybe a middle class French person having an Evelyn Waugh-style awakening, some of the humor may be lost on you. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film has been bashed by Brazilian critics for an u0026quot;insensitiveu0026quot; portrayal of Brazilians, but cues like an Amazon tribe whose name sounds like u0026quot;Oi, Papi!u0026quot; and Mary Sheilau0026#39;s silently awesome reactions to the shenanigans unfolding around her, let us know that the Brazilians are definitely in on the joke.”
