This film from Brazil depicts the state-of-mind of a young woman, now a practicing medical doctor, as she deals with daily challenges including caring for her ailing father and her patients from various walks of life. She is sexually liberated, but cannot find love in one man. Somehow I do not find the story engaging. Still, it can be a decent watch to get a glimpse of life in another part of the world. Subtitles.

A Brazilian woman at the cross road of her medical career, romantic relationship and caring for an ailing father. Nothing compelling but offered a glimpse of the marginal conditions of the Brazilian public healthcare. Per wiki: At the 45th Festival de Brasília it shared the Best Film Award with They'll Come Back, and won Best Supporting Actor (W. J Solha), Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Score.

Patient myself, feeling uneasy. With my mind spinning around...going from one place to another relentlessly. Myself, thinking about this uneasiness.
===
I, Veronica, patient of myself...trying to think about life in another way. Thinking about life. Life as it were a film. Once upon a time...a film that would start deep inside my head... and would reveal a whole different world. A world with a happy-ending. My own kind of happy-ending. Life falling over me. ...
