Movie Info

Regina (Fernanda Montenegro) is a retired divorcée living in Rio de Janeiro. She's estranged from her only son and his family because he's invited his father to live with him. She's devoted to her dog, Betina, and occupies her spare time as a member of the police force's special senior citizen program. Regina, operating under the code name "Snow White" spends a lot of her time looking for wrongdoers to report to the police. She spends her evenings looking out her apartment window with binoculars

The Other Side of the Street is full of the stillness, and silences, of a life that's been muted and shut down.

A poignant little film that explores loss and new leases on life with intelligence and care.

An appealingly quirky thriller from Brazil.

[A] tough, sentimental Brazilian drama about two young souls distressed to find themselves in elderly bodies.

The Other Side of the Street is more love story than thriller, with the mystery providing only slack tension and the December-December romance that ultimately develops between Regina and Camargo crackling with drama and sexual tension aplenty.

A languid, delicate character study; the strengths of the film are found in the loving yet unsentimental portrayal of its two intensely troubled, carefully drawn protagonists.

A geriatric love story.

[These] could have been compelling characters, but The Other Side of the Street surrounds them with contrivance, and it quickly grows tedious.

Succeeds in portraying seniors with sexual identities and desires, but fails on most other counts.

June 9, 2005
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Regina has no traces of caricature and is portrayed as a disgruntled snoop, a disappointed mother and a lonely 75-year-old looking for emotional and physical companionship.

It's a modest success, mostly because of its lead performance.

It's part crime thriller, part touching romance, part family drama, and part CPD (Cocoon Police Department).

April 22, 2005 Full Review Source:

Overall the writer-director's pacing of this leisurely story, and the obvious delight he takes in Regina, carries the film.

Hitchcock would be proud

March 6, 2005 Full Review Source: Compuserve

First-time Brazilian director Marcos Bernstein's thriller examines old age, alienation -- and a murder mystery!

Neither very Hitchcockian nor particularly thrilling.
