Book

Dom Casmurro, by Machado de Assis

brajunwwl

 

 

This book is a fictional memoir from a distrusting, jealous husband. The narrator, however, is not a reliable conveyor of the story as it is a dark comedy. Dom Casmurro is considered by critic Afranio Coutinho “a true Brazilian masterpiece, and maybe Brazil’s greatest representative piece of writing” and “one of the best books ever written in the Portuguese Language, if not the best one to date.”

Movie

SOS mulheres ao mar, by Cris D’Amato

The film follows the story of Adriana, which disappointed with the end of her marriage, decides to win back her ex-husband embarking on the same cruise that he is with his new girlfriend, a soap opera star. However, during the trip, they meet new people and discover new ways and solutions to their lives.
