My Uncle Killed a Guy (Meu Tio Matou Um Cara) / Brazil / 2004 / Jorge Furtado / Comedy / 87 mins
Synopsis: One can’t choose relatives. Nor a great love either. “Meu Tio Matou Um Cara” (My Uncle Killed a Guy) is a young film, a romantic comedy and thriller in which Duca (Darlan Cunha), 15 years old, does all he can to prove the innocence of his uncle (Lázaro Ramos), jailed upon confessing having killed a guy. Duca is sure the uncle is taking upon himself the crime so as to keep free the girlfriend, Soraia (Deborah Secco), ex-wife of the deceased. And, amidst all this action, Duca still tries to conquer the heart of Isa (Sophia Reis), a school classmate who seems to be more interested in his best friend, Kid (Renan Gioielli). Duca involves both in the investigation and, in the end… well, one must see the film.
