Bossa Nova Review


Weak
It's a love octagon (I think) in the Brazilian romantic comedy Bossa Nova, though the appearance of two English speakers (Amy Irving stars, Stephen Tobolowsky has a welcome supporting role) makes you wonder how this film ever got put together. Irving in fact plays a widowed teacher of English to the adults of Rio de Janiero, somehow drawing the romantic gaze of at least two locals. Never mind that each character also has another love interest, and they have two love interests, and they have two love interests... and so on. The story isn't so much confusing as it is implausible, but I suppose that's what romance is all about. Skip the story and just gawk at the scenery in Rio.
