I like the movie, I watched it in the original Brazillian as I am Portuguese. To really know what happens behind this movie, you have to know some context. In brazil, men are encouraged to have lovers outside of their marriage, and women are meant to be strictly for their husbands. For a woman to do this goes against the cultural norms of brazil and almost brings a sense of empowerment to Brazilian women, and since the roles are reversed, it’s something that is inherently wrong. The movie itself has a really tight budget, being filmed mostly on the premises of the house where Darlene lives. Almost everyone in the movie is a mixed Indigenous/Portuguese person or Full indegenous.
