    Experimental

    The adventure of Melissa and Gustavo starts aboard a red cargo ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean. It takes them to Berlin, a city of constant movement, where the old has to give space to the new. The couple finds a home and transforms it into the center of their own universe. As time passes and seasons change, life and cinema become one and their room becomes an ever-changing stage, where friends are invited to play their own roles. In this state of transition Melissa and Gustavo lose sight of their path and their world starts to tremble.

    Director's Statement

    From the shooting of the first images aboard a cargo ship until we finished the editing, it took us 9 years - almost a quarter of our lives - to complete MUITO ROMÂNTICO. A journey from Brazil to Germany that will never end and continues to affect us in our lives and work. Finally we found an answer to the question infinitely repeated: Why did you come to Berlin? To make a film.
