From the director of City of God, The Constant Gardener and Blindness

In this remake of the 1950 classic La Ronde, an all-star cast weaves through interrelated stories about love, passion and loneliness. From London and Denver to Phoenix and Vienna, people are haunted by their need to connect, despite the consequences.

In some way, the movie has a lot of similarities with "Love In The Time Of Money" in the way people connect, evolve, continue their journey with that evolution, and so on, in a sort of loop where it all comes back to the beginning, with a whole new perspective. This movie is beautiful in some aspect, the story of the Russian driver with the sister of the prostitute, the father seeking his daughter meeting this young and beautiful soul from Brazil, discovering disillusion... Perhaps if the movie had actually focused on the journey of Laura (amazing Maria Flor), and her encounter with Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster, this would have made the movie. Alas, the movie goes and comes back to the characters in such a laborious way, playing the "international" card, playing connectedness in a Babel way, but not engaging enough, to unequal.
