GRLAFF 2012: É Proibido Fumar (Smoke Gets In Your Eyes)

4:30pm, Saturday March 31 at Wealthy Theatre

2009 – Brazil, 86 min. R-14

Directed by Anna Muylaert

Portuguese with English Subtitles
This genre-bending dark comedy that floats by in an unpretentious puff, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is a charmer whose charisma works, like its characters, in modest but lingering ways. In São Paulo, a lonely forty-something guitar teacher lives a tedious life in a lower middle-class apartment, accompanied by her only companions, cigarettes. When she and her new neighbor Max hit it off, however, she discovers that love —and a support group— can help her to overcome her habit… but it can also cloud judgment.
