Possible Loves

Synopsis: Fifteen year ago, Carlos went to the cinema to meet Júlia, his university colleague with whom he was in love. She never showed up. Carlos was left waiting in the lobby alone. While he waits, something happens which will change his life. A scene, an encounter, an unfinished sentence... Something insignificant, but which will determine the character's life. Fifteen years later, we follow three completely different versions of Carlos's life. In one, he is a man divided between the stability of a secure life in a lukewarm marriage, and the growing desire to live a great love affair. In the second, he is homosexual and places passion above all else. In the third possible life, Carlos is a man who hasn't yet discovered love, and lives through successive disastrous relationships in search of the perfect woman. One of them is his real life. Another is not his life. And a third is the life he'd like to lead. Which is his true life ?

- Awake?

- I had a strange dream.

A nightmare?

No, it was actually

very pleasant.

- Tell me.

- It's not worth it.

Good morning.

Nine o'clock.

You know what a bore Lourdes

is about punctuality.

Please don't be late as usual.

I'd rather only show up

in time for coffee.

You're always arguing

with Lourdes.

I hate her dinner

parties, that's all.

You always have fun.

After a couple of whiskies,

I'd even enjoy a funeral.

Do you think I should

wear that blue dress?

I'm tired of wearing black.

Isn't it monotonous when everyone...

dresses exactly the same?

In black.

Carlos, I was looking for you.

Guess what this is!

The legal department

signed our contract.

Now we're their lawyers in

every Latin American port.

Vessels, cargo and staff.

Want to take a look?

- Can I say 'no'?

- Of course not.

We've been after this deal

for over a year...

and you react like this?

- I'll tell you later.

- No, come on. Are you all right?

I'm fine.

So I see.

- I don't know, I had this weird dream.

- Dream?

About an ex-girlfriend.

Well, she wasn't in it,

we'd agreed to meet in the cinema.

- And then?

- Then nothing.

I woke up, looked around, my

room, the furniture, Maria.

I hate dreaming.

If it's a bad dream,

you have cold sweats.

And a good dream is just a dream.

I hate dreaming.

I'll see you up there.


Would you be capable

of waiting for someone?

I am waiting.

Seriously, could you wait for

a woman, for a very long time?

I'm not exactly famous for being

patient with the opposite sex.

How long?

- Fifteen years.

- Fifteen years?!

I thought you meant half

an hour, 20 minutes!

No woman deserves

that long. Ciao!

Go on, Carlos, turn it off.


- I woke up all dizzy.

- What's wrong?

I had a weird dream.

Was I in it?

It wasn't that weird.

- Come on, time to get up.

- No, it's Saturday!

Wake up, Pedro.

Lucas will be mad

if we don't go.

Julia will be mad, too.

Your ex-wife is always

mad at something.

Today's Saturday, it's 8 a.m.

She probably hasn't even thought

of a reason to be mad yet.

Call her and say you're

not fetching Lucas...

and she'll thank you.

You'll give her a great reason

to have a terrible Saturday.

All right, has your mother

got your things ready?

We're leaving now.


Come on, Pedro.

Come on.


Can you manage

the rest yourself?

I managed to get up, but waking

me will take another 2 hours.

- We haven't got 2 hours.

- We haven't?

Well let's forget it then

and go back to bed.

No, Pedro, Lucas

is waiting for us.


I'm trying to go faster,

only my body won't obey.

Everything's in

your bag, son.

If you change clothes, put them

back so you don't forget anything.

Won't you warn

me about Pedro?

You bet. Watch your back

with that guy, understand?

If you go to the bathroom,

lock the door.

I don't want that guy

seeing you naked.

You're so paranoid

about Pedro and dad.

Paranoid? Where did

you learn that word?

You say it to dad

all the time.

Let's not get too progressive here.

You're too young to understand.

There, that's

your dad honking.

- Bye, mom.

- Have a nice time.

- So, all set?

- Hi, Pedro!

Are you all right?

Look what a wonderful hat!

- Who bought you that hat?

- My dad.

- Are you jealous?

- Got to watch out.

One fine day you wake up after

a weird dream, look around...

and think that this

life isn't really yours.


You think my dream

was about Julia?

All I know is, I wasn't in it.

Come, Lucas!

- It's nothing, dad.

- Come on!

Carlos Eduardo, it's time.

- Come on, don't be lazy. Get up.
