Imagine a version of Rear Window featuring, instead of Jimmy Stewart, a
grandmotherly fussbudget (Montenegro); in place of Raymond Burr, a rakish
age-appropriate "widower" (Cortez); and subbing for Grace Kelly, an attractive
collie. That's the long and short of this derivative Brazilian thriller,
offsetting its refreshingly mature protagonists—old people do indeed have
sex—with an unfortunately literal sense of homage, down to the binoculars, the
modernist bank of apartment windows, even the dialogue ("I know what I saw!").
