Synopsis by Mark Deming
Based on a well-known Brazilian novel, Amor & Cia (aka Love Inc.) is a satiric period piece that makes light of the consequences of a romantic triangle. Alves (Marco Nanini) thinks he has a happy marriage until one day he discovers his wife Ludovina (Patricia Pillar) is having an affair with Machado, his business partner (Alexandre Borges). Alves immediately packs Ludovina off to her parents' home, and he debates both the etiquette and the means of challenging Machado to a duel. Amor & Cia was shown at the 1999 Puerto Rico Film Festival.
