(Malu on a Bicycle) 2009 Directed by Flávio Tambellini Based on the novel by Marcelo Rubens Paiva, the film tells the story of Luiz Mario, a São Paulo night-club impresario and a classic “bon vivant”, who is also an avid collector of love affairs. He is surrounded by all types of women, with whom he has flings, but he is never able to commit himself emotionally. Until one day, while passing by Rio de Janeiro, he falls head-over-heels for the carioca Malu, who practically runs him over on her bike while riding down Leblon’s beach bike path. The couple’s romance is abruptly thrown into disarray when an enigmatic love letter is discovered. From then on, the story between the two lovers is turned upside-down.
