Critic Reviews for O Céu de Suely
...a well-observed slice of social realist cinema.
Pacing is a problem with Love For Sale, but meaning never is.
Guedes is electrifying, and so un-Hollywood you have to cheer for the continuing health of Brazilian cinema.
The steamy Brazilian drama Love for Sale takes a timeworn Hollywood premise -- down-on-her-luck woman turns hooker to survive -- and gives it an enthralling new twist.
Love for Sale has a deep sympathy for sexual free spirits in a rigid macho society.
Audience Reviews for O Céu de Suely
Brazilian neorealism at its best. Karim AÃ¯nouz, my absolute favourite contemporary Brazilian director, once again does not disappoint with this mix of documentary and fiction shot without the aid of artificial lighting. Don't be intimidated by the pace or the horrible English title, there are great lessons about anonimity and our longing for affection to be learnt here.
Well-made, but a bit boring and depressing. The cover song of "Everything I Own" is very pretty and apropos.
I saw this with English subtitles. I did not find it outstanding, but worth watching. Is it a comment on the few choices a Brazilian woman has - especially one with a child? Her husband abandons her, and she is left to raise their son with no income in a dead town - even his mother is no help.
