Do Começo ao Fim (English: "From Beginning to End") is a Brazilian film that premiered on November 27, 2009[2], starring Fábio Assunção, Júlia Lemmertz, Gabriel Kaufmann, Lucas Cotrim, João Gabriel Vasconcellos and Rafael Cardoso.[3]



The film deals with two types of relationships that are often considered taboo: incest and homosexuality. The story line tells of two brothers who are very close when they are kids, and as they grow up an incestuous relationship develops.[4] The director, Aluisio Abranches said that his sole intention was to show a love story, regardless of conditions.
