MUBI's take

Winning awards in Sundance and Berlin, this sparkling dramedy is piercing in its depiction of Brazil’s class distinctions, yet deeply heart-warming. Regina Casé charmed audiences with her candid performance as the loyal maid of a wealthy household—whose social codes her brazen daughter will disrupt.
