I’ve been trying to enhance my Portuguese vocabulary by watching Brazilian films. There’s been an odd trend in the movies I’ve selected. Most of the story lines have involved a guy cheating on his woman. All comedies.
What is so hilarious about infidelity? And what I find even odder is that they guy is always forgiven my his wife/girlfriend in the end.
This must be a cultural thing, right? You’d be hard pressed to find an American movie in which the character arch of the “cheater” doesn’t end in total misery. Not judging, just observing.
I’m thinking I’ll move on to dramas. Although, I have a feeling I’m going to run into the same theme.
