Mini-Review: The Inheritance (A Partilha)

Based on a hit Brazilian play the screenplay also co-written by Miguel Falabella is wonderful. If you can get a hold of this movie it’s really worthwhile. Glória Pires, Lilia Cabral, Andrea Beltrão, and Paloma Duarte interact as real sisters do and it’s great fun watching them try to steal scenes from one another. The interesting thing about this film is that it was filmed with all master shots and it’s incredible how well it works in a comedy. The performances truly shine in this film which is funny and often touching. This is a film that is universally funny and appealing and I’m surprised it didn’t get wider exposure
