|Genre: Drama, Infidelity, Marriage|
Tagline: It is impossible to find all virtues on a unique man.
Plot: ME YOU THEM tells the true story of Darlene Linhares (Regina Casé), a woman with a huge heart and the practicality to deal with it; she has three husbands, each of whom satisfies her desires in his own way. Osias (Lima Duarte) is her rogue of a husband, the owner of a goat farm. The affectionate Zezinho (Sténio Garcia) joins the family when his mother dies; he performs domestic duties. And Ciro (Luiz Carlos Vasconcelos), the sexy hunk Darlene finds at work, is simply hot. Directed by Andrucha Waddington, this film is a provocative work that explores the fantasies a woman has during her marriage.
In a way, ME YOU THEM is a fairy tale--the fantasy where love triumphs in the face of adversity. But, because it is based on a true story and because Casé's performance is so earthy and easygoing, the fantasy becomes a reality. All of this takes place in the warm, arid landscapes of Bahia, Brazil, the hometown of Gilberto Gil--the legendary master of traditional Brazilian sounds--who also wrote the soundtrack. Waddington's combines the romance and simplicity of IL POSTINO and the wild sensuality of BELLE EPOQUE.
