Loveling (Benzinho)


The ebb and flow of life in a Brazilian family household takes a tumultuous turn in this captivating comedy drama by writer-director Gustavo Pizzi. Award-winning actor Karine Teles (also the film’s co-writer) delivers a powerful, charismatic and emotional performance as mother-of-four Irene, whose life is turned upside down when her eldest son, Fernando (Konstantinos Sarris), is offered a chance to pursue his sporting dreams overseas. Beautiful cinematography and a warm sense of humour add to the film’s charm.
