The Last Days of Gilda

Gustavo Pizzi and his ex-wife Karine Teles are a productive filming duo, writing screenplays together and with him directing and her playing the lead. This was the case with the films Riscado (2010) and Benzinho (2017), and yet again in The Last Days of Gilda, originally made as a four-part TV mini series. The screenplay, based on a play by Rodrigo de Roure, is an ode to freedom and sensuality.

Gilda (Teles) – a colourful, independent woman who loves good food and good sex – lives in a Rio de Janeiro suburb. Not everyone in the neighbourhood appreciates the way she chooses to live and there is a lot of gossip going around. Usually this does not bother her, but things change when she has to deal with Cacilda, a supporter of the reactionary Christian pastor Isaías, who seems to be gaining increasingly more influence in the neighbourhood. There is no place for "Gildas" in their world.
