Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead opens with an unflatteringly naked Andy Hanson (Philip Seymour Hoffman) conjugally conjoined with his far more flatteringly naked wife, Gina (Marisa Tomei). They are in Rio, they are in bed, and they are, for the moment at least, in love. Hearts may not be entertaining June, and an amber moon is nowhere in evidence, but Brazil has nonetheless worked its magic on their unhappy lives and marriage. As Gina elegantly puts it, “I don’t feel like such a F-up when I’m here.” Andy assures her that they’ll come back again. “We have enough money,” he promises, “to stay here for the rest of our lives.”
