The Other Side of the Street


Time Out says

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!").
