Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A Mulher Do Proximo is Portuguese for Your Neighbor's Wife. In this instance, the wife was the mistress of her handsome, aging neighbor. Both lovers die suddenly, in circumstances that reveal their long-standing affair to the whole world. Now the families of the two decedents must come to terms with their loved one's peccadilloes; even more difficult, those families have to figure out how they're going to get along with each other. Filmed in Portugal, A Mulher Do Proximo more closely resembles one of those hot-n-heavy Brazilian soap operas than a feature film, which doesn't hurt the picture one bit.
