The Amorous Ones (Portuguese: As Amorosas) is a 1968 Brazilian drama film written and directed by Walter Hugo Khouri. The film was selected as the Brazilian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 41st Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.[2] The film was also entered into the 1969 Melbourne International Film Festival.[3]


A young university student lives in a permanent state of perplexity and emotional indecision, which is reflected in all his attitudes and positions taken on life. Of bourgeois fomentation, he lives almost in poverty, living at his friends' house and arranging money for small services and loans obtained from his sister.
