Alice's House

As the title suggests, the movie revolves around Alice (Carla Ribas), a manicurist, who leads a drudgery of a life surrounded by her three sons, a crabby husband and old mother. A very stark view of the life of lower middle class family in Brazil. But realism always doesn't translate into placing the viewer in a mood of enjoyment or contentment.
