Most successful character of Paulo Gustavo, Dona Hermínia and their family confusions are back in the third film in the hit franchise My mother is a piece, which started to be shot between Rio and Niterói.
Children are a source of surprises – and worries – for Dona Hermínia. In this new story, directed by Susana Garcia, the super mom will have to face life with her children forming new families, in a completely new scenario for her. The most entertaining mother in the country will be “standing bobs” with Marcelina (Mariana Xavier), who is pregnant, with Juliano (Rodrigo Pandolfo), who appears with a supernova, and with Carlos Alberto (Herson Capri), the ex who is always around and now decides to get even closer. Production is by Migdal Movies and the distribution is from Downtown Movies, in co-distribution with the Paris Movies. And the premiere date is already set: December 26.
The film, starring Paulo Gustavo, is based on the play of the same name, created and starring by the actor and which took millions of spectators to the theater over the years on display:
“No use I won’t spoiler”- jokes Paulo Gustavo. “This movie is really fun. We have already told you about Marcelina, I will not tell you what Juliano is up to. But seriously, this time Dona Hermínia is trying to find herself again, it is a new scenario for her. It is the children getting married, leaving the house, having children, forming new families and how she will deal with it. I am very happy to return to the character on the film set, at a time when I am intensely living my relationship with my mother, since we are doing a show together. Let’s share this with the audience”.
There will be more than 30 intense days of filming, which will bring together the main cast of previous productions: Herson Capri, Mariana Xavier, Rodrigo Pandolfo, Alexandra Richter, Samantha Schmütz, Patricya Travassos and Malu Valle. The scenes are being captured in real locations in Niterói, in several neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro and in Búzios.
Released in 2013 and 2016, the first two films in the franchise My mother is a piece together brought more than 13 million viewers to theaters. In the character’s last feature, Dona Hermínia became a famous TV presenter and her story hit, at the time, the record for the highest collection in Brazilian cinema, with R $ 173,798,332.00 (* Source: Film B).
