Review | After the Universe – Giulia Be Makes Her Big Screen Debut in Brazilian Dramatic Style ‘A Fault in Our Stars’



About ten years ago, the publishing market was invaded by a genre derivation that has become a phenomenon: the so-called sick beds, stories centered on one or more characters suffering from a serious illness – almost always a terminal illness and almost always a young character. . That’s how the big screen landed adaptations like ‘Everything and All Things’, ‘Five Feet from You’ and the genre’s flagship, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, which brought millions of teens to tears in the movie theater. Now coming to Netflix is ​​the Brazilian representative of this group, the romantic drama ‘After the Universe’, which has already premiered directly in the top 10 positions in 43 countries.

Nina (Giulia Be) has suffered from an autoimmune disease since childhood: lupus. Although she has to surpass herself daily to be able to teach and carry out her hemodialysis treatment, she takes care of her grandfather (Othon Bastos) and dreams of becoming a solo pianist with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra. But when she thinks of the pain she often feels and her online number for a kidney transplant (14,889), Nina is dismayed, feeling like the kind of person who sees the glass half empty. Then, on a cloudy day while in the hospital on hemodialysis, she recognizes Gabriel (Henrique Zaga), whom she had met earlier at the train station, and discovers that he is a resident doctor. full of spirit and motivation, determined to show him the bright side of life. However, the doctor-patient relationship will be challenged when the friendship between the two evolves into something more.

Innocent and cute, ‘After the Universe’ brings teenage singer-songwriter Giulia Be’s debut to the cinematic world, and that, in itself, is already catching critics’ eyes. Add to that the fact that the singer has nearly 3 million followers on a single social network and lo and behold, we already have the Netflix blockbuster, which even offers a song composed exclusively by the singer for the film.

Enjoy watching:

Lasting over two hours, Diego Freitas’ feature film delivers a story that the singer’s target audience connects with, driven by the actress’ desire to give her best to her fans. , even in his first great work. Filmed during the pandemic – at a time when autoimmune diseases were gaining center stage, given the aggravation in the event of contagion – it is interesting to observe the alternatives found by the director (who appears in the feature film, he is the bartender at the disco) to record certain scenes, especially the use of ethereal effects, which also connects to the video of Giulia with Luan Santana. For those who are fans, just find the references.

The screenplay, with the collaboration of Rodrigo Azevedo and also the actor João Côrtes, develops the plot step by step, but sometimes emphasizes elements that lead nowhere. [três closes na bolsa de Nina, que não interfere na história; a mania do melhor amigo Yuri (Leo Bahia) roncar e beber refrigerante, que não acrescenta; o avô que vai se vestir para a apresentação da neta e some, só reaparecendo na cena final]. With the very special participation of Viviane Araújo, who, with her innate charisma, gives a joyful tone to the hospital environment, “Après l’Univers” is a film of typical youthful innocence, a gift from the singer to her fans, no doubt. .
