Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Happily Ever After
Directed by Bruno Barreto
Euro-American Home Video 1986 DVD/VHS Feature Film
Not Rated

Fernanda (Regina Darte) is successful decorator who is married and has two children. She is deeply troubled and aroused by a dream she has in which she dances with a blonde woman and then discovers her partner is a man in a wig.

Fernanda meets Miguel (Paulo Castelli), a male prostitute and performer in a transvestite revue. While her husband is away with a friend, Fernanda steps into her dream and experiences a mad love affair with Miguel. O course, all he is after is her money, which he needs for a big drug deal.

Bruno Barreto (Gabriela) focuses on the exotic journey of Fernanda into a strange alternate world of sex. After her passionate adventure runs its course, she returns to her marriage and career. Perhaps a more interesting film could have been made about what happens to this woman once she is back in her traditional world.
