In an old-time dance hall (the “gafieira”) in São Paulo, one evening is all it takes to meet different characters as they remember the past, live the present, wonder about the future, have fun, flirt, fight and, naturally, dance.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
The whole film takes place during only one night in a typical Brazilian dance hall called Chega de Saudade, an old-fashioned place where people, usually older and lonely, go to dance, flirt and refound lost memories and times.
With a cast of great names of the Brazilian tv/theater, Chega de Saudade is a nice movie with good humour. Very funny specially to those that have already gone to a place like that. 3/5 stars
