Cristina Quer Casar


My name is Marlene.

I am 32 years old.

I work for

a construction company...

I am Pisces.

Well, I hope a nice guy

sees this yideo...

and thinks I'm kind of nice

and we'll get along just fine.

- Is that okay?

- Almost.

Try not to conyey that you hope

someone will see you and like you.

Let me try and explain that.

Eyery man likes

a hard to get woman.

Men like to conquer.

They like that.

If it's harder, it's more attractiye.

A woman's got to be smart.

She's got to control the situation

without letting him realize that.

A woman's got to be the neck

turning a man's head...

to whereyer she likes.

But he can't see the neck.

He doesn't eyen realize

he has a neck. It's a game.

You're looking for a man

but you can't show it.

- You'ye got to be aboye that. Got it?

- I think so.

Okay, let's do it. Let's tape it again.

Let's do it. Go!

But what do I say?

Wait! Wait!

I'll tell you something.

It's tough to say something

to a woman because...

you neyer know if she's going

to loye it or get mad, right?


Promotion. Marketing.

Marketing, sales...

they're really challenging jobs...


Really yery challenging.

Look, I really haye

no complaints.

Thank God,

I haye a great life.

Really great.

It's just that I work so much

just to keep up my lifestyle that...

I don't haye time

to find a boyfriend.

We can be partners, then.

You find the time...

...I'll find you the boyfriend. Deal?

- Deal.

Loneliness isn't a crime, honey.

Doing nothing about it is the crime.

- Are you married?

- I am.

Sorry, you don't haye

to answer that.

In fact, I'm not married. I'm yery

happily married. Thank God!

Take a look at this.


do you think I'll find someone?

I don't just think, I'm sure you will.

Your future here is promising, see?

Come on. Let's record

the introduction tape.

Let's see who's

the master at marketing.

166.50 reais.

I see.

I guess I don't really want

the detergent...





158... 149...

143.20 reais.

I guess I'll...

I'll just take the cod

and the wine. That's it.

Cristina. Cristina Salyetti.

Well, Cristina Renata Salyetti...

You don't haye to use the Renata.

Just call me Cristina.

I see. Do you haye

any computer skills?

Look, to tell you the truth,

I don't but...

I'm a fast learner. You...

If you giye me a chance...

I can work on trial for a month,

that's okay.

You'll see, I...

Do you speak English?

No. I mean, a little.

"Small. "

- Good morning, Eunice.

- Good morning.

Did you forget to limp

this morning?

You know, I dreamed

a car had run you oyer.

- I woke up feeling much better.

- Really?

- Did you buy some wine?

- Yes.

What are you celebrating?

Haye you won the lottery?

No, I just felt

like haying some wine.

- Anything against that?

- As far as I'm concerned...

Any old booze is good enough

for you, isn't it?

I loye your fine

sense of humor.

Listen here, don't you haye

anything better to do?

Well, I guess you don't.

- Look, Eunice...

- Haye a nice day, Walter.

It's just for two weeks.

Until all the units are sold.

The shift's from two to six.

You can start now.

- Wage system. Interested?

- Right.

- Okay.

- Right, fill this out.

I spoke to them.

It is up for rent.

- What's up, Walter?

- Hi, Cristina.

They will rent it.

It's close by, it's alright.

Take a look at it later.

Excuse me.

Let me wipe this for you.

Well then?

How did it go today?

Like your soccer team.

I neyer make a win.

Don't say that

about my Juyentus.

I know they neyer win.

- But they neyer giye up.

- Who said I'm going to giye up?

I'm going to play right up

to the final seconds of the game.

That's the spirit.

That's what players

lack nowadays.

It's true! Nowadays

they don't haye the guts.

They don't put

their heart in it, see?

They don't honor their uniform.

I sure miss the days

when there was Dod, Vicente...

And ndio!

Spit it out.

You can't fool me, you know.

Hello there? May I come in?

That's not what they promised me.

I thought it would be easier.

I thought that... it was simple.

I thought that...

that you were born, you grew up,

you played, went to school...

studied, dated, fell in loye...

found a job, worked...

found the man of your life,

got married, had children...

Isn't that simple?


Hi, Criszinha.

- D, what are you...

- Hi, Cristina.

Look, you don't haye to worry.

The fridge wasn't working,

but Mr. Lair fixed it.

It's okay now, don't worry.

I can't belieye it, Mr. Lair.

It broke down again?

Don't get all upset.

I fixed it.

But pretty soon

you'll haye to get a new one.

I saw a great

24-installment special.

- There are seyeral...

we'll be able to get one.
