This documentary shows Arvo Pärt at home with his family and working in his study. He is interviewed/provides voiceover in Estonian/Russian with subtitled English translations. Concert rehearsals (The Hilliard Ensemble/ Western Wind Choir/Paul Hillier) (unknown Finnish choir & orchestra/Eri Klas) and a studio session (Arvo Pärt: Yamaha DX7 keyboard, Jan Garbarek: tenor saxophone & Manfred Eicher: engineer) for the unreleased recording of what is reputedly Aetos are shown. Also a few minutes of the Kremer/Grindenko/Schnittke /Sondeckis Tabula Rasa performance is shown which would lead one to think that there is a complete video recording of that as well as the WDR Radio recording used for the ECM release. The tone of the documentary alternates from serious interviews/work to humorous scenes of Pärt clowning around and German "man on the street" interviews with people being asked "Who is Arvo Pärt?". Overall, a fascinating view into Pärt's work and lifestyle. - Alan Teder

Sai de Baixo is a Brazilian sitcom that first aired on Rede Globo. It followed the lives of the members of a dysfunctional family, their maid and the doorman of the apartment building in which they lived. It ran for 7 seasons, from 1996 to 2002, on Sunday nights after the newsmagazine Fantastico. That means that it always aired after 10 o'clock p.m., which was necessary given the show's heavy language and sexual innuendos. In 2000, however, the premiere of a new reality show shifted the program to the 11:30 p.m. slot, which lasted for about four months. After that the timeslot varied almost monthly, which started to hurt ratings. At one time, the show was airing around 12:30 a.m., which is considered the beginning of the "wasteland" of late night programming in Brazilian television, with fewer viewers and, therefore, fewer sponsors. The show was hailed as a "breath of fresh air" in Brazilian TV comedy, given its innovative format and funny, smart stories. It was also considered the "lifeline" of Sunday night programming in Brazilian network television. This status did not last until the very end though. The show is considered to have jumped the shark around its 5th season, and was supposedly kept on the air only because Globo TV had nothing to replace it with. Towards the end, ratings had plummeted and the show had slid to what was called a "vulgar version" of its original, groundbreaking style.

Unbeknownst to Thit, Gandaomanee is using her elder twin sister's name, Gandaowasee, for herself, therefore tricking him into thinking her real name is Gandaowasee. She later leaves him when she grows tired of him and finds out that he's the poor son of a merchant (his mother makes Thai desserts). Thit is heart-broken and tries searching for her unsuccessfully. One year later, Thit meets the real Gandaowasee Kitrinisuan at a banquet and is ecstatic upon seeing her. But Gan claims she doesn't know him. Thit is confused and confronts Gan about their relationship. He assumes she doesn't want to remember him because he's poor, therefore denying ever knowing him. Gan doesn't know that she has a younger twin named Gandaomanee (Nee) from her father's previous marriage, and that Gandaomanee is using Gan's name to cause trouble for people around her. Their parents separated when the twins were born. Their father, Visake, took Gan with him, while Nee is left with their mother. She later remarried a poor man who works as a principal at a school. Nee is bitter about her poor life and blames Visake and Gan for it. Therefore, she uses her older twin sister's name to fool with men around her. Thit soon inherits a fortune from his father's family and becomes rich. It turns out Visake, Gan's father, is a close friend of Thit's paternal family. Gan finds out that he is the sole heir to the Suriyakan family fortune. He taunts her character, making false accusations about her. A lot of misunderstandings occur because he thinks she is a two-faced person who plays with men's hearts. He also believes that she is stealing her younger stepsister's boyfriend. Thit's grandmother soon realizes that Thit and Gan have feelings for each other (although he still thinks of Gan as his "Gandaowasee" that he met a year ago). She wants to see Thit marry someone he loves, so she proposes they marry each other. Gan refuses the proposal at first, for she knows he is mistaking her for his other Gandaowasee and that he doesn't truly love her. Nareerat (Apple Aitanik Intarasut), Gan's stepsister, is under the impression that Gan is stealing her boyfriend, Brapun (Pukhai Pongsiri Bunluewong). She threatens to kill herself if Gan doesn't marry Thit. Gan gives in, accepting Thit's wedding "proposal." Thit and Gan marry each other and slowly fall in love. Soon Gandaomanee gets into the picture, trying to win back Tit now that he's rich. She wants a better life for herself and will do anything to get what she wants. Thit is conflicted to who "Gandaowasee" really is. The one he met at the beach, or the one he married. Only time will tell who Tit really loves.
