The meeting of a man with his image 20 years younger. This is the plot of O Clone. In the beggining of the story Lucas is a happy adolescent, romantic, full of projects, and he's in love with a young arabic girl: Jade. But life didn't run well for him: he separates with Jade and, during the twenty years that have passed during the novel, he's not the same thing physically, his projects are lost by the way, he has no more the tenderness, the romantic atmosphere, and the poetry of before. He's now dry by inside. Jade, in the other side, lived all this time imagining that her life would be much happier if she had married him. Twenty years later they meet again. Jade gets upset, trying to find, in the forty years old Lucas, what is left from the person she once fell in love with. That's when the clone appears, made by Lucas' godfather without his knowledge, the geneticist Albieri. The clone is not Lucas, but it is the image that Jade loved during her whole life. We have then, an uncommon ... Written by Glória Perez

User Reviews

In experts' hands this original plot might have made an extremely good soap opera.
15 May 2002 | by luismribeiroSee all my reviews

The idea of producing a cloned human being, watch this creature grow up to become a twenty-year-old man, and eventually see him meet his genetic `twin brother' is an original plot in itself. Having a few romantic and adult sub-plots added, and a great deal of the whole story taking place in the context of Muslim religious and cultural background in Brazil and in Morocco, can certainly complicate a director's task. Gloria Perez's `O Clone' is certainly well above most soap operas shown on TV. The actors and actresses give good performances, the main plot is original, and the Muslim background adds a curious atmosphere, at least to a non-Muslim audience. Also, drug addiction is crudely brought to the screen, with an expertise we rarely see, and receives the serious treatment such theme deserves. At a certain point, however, Miss Perez seems to have lost grip of the situation, getting lost in the midst of so many intricate and intertwined sub-plots which, one would think, she doesn't know how to end.
