Product Description

Veronica is fresh out of medical school. It's a crucial time in her life, a period filled with doubts and important decisions to be made: tough career choices, her intimate bond with her ailing father, and her active but chaotic love life. Veronica must deal with all of them as she tries to cope with the adult life that lies ahead.

Once Upon a Time Veronica is a fairy tale in reverse. There are no fairy godmothers, no weddings, and no dreams. Veronica s story reveals itself through adventures, misfortunes, desires and songs.


Brazil's Marcelo Gomes leaps to the front rank of South American filmmakers with his sophomore feature Once Upon a Time Veronica (Era uma vez eu, Verônica), a superbly sensual character study of a young woman navigating emotional and professional crossroads. Built around a stunning central performance by Hermila Guedes, it premiered at Toronto before landing five major awards at Brazil's national film festival in Brasilia and then nabbing a special mention in the Horizontes Latinos section at San Sebastian... Once Upon a Time Veronica confirms northeastern Brazil - birthplace of the legendary Glauber Rocha - as a hotbed of cinematic talent, just as fertile as southern cities Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. -Neil Young --Hollywood Reporter

Mr. Gomes and his cinematographer, Mauro Pinheiro Jr., employ a lovely, diffuse approach to light and bodies that feels at once sensual and slightly buffered from that sensuality. The entire film treads a delicate balance...Ms. Guedes's bodily sense of languor gets across more than any crystal-clear dramatic statement would. -Nicolas Rapold --New York Times

From its opening frames depicting group sex on the beach, Marcelo Gomes's Once Upon a Time Veronica announces itself as a sensual experience... -Danny King --Village Voice
