When I was young, Latin American cinema had not reached too many heights, or at least not too many peak products had been released in Panamá. There was the occasional Mexican mega hit, starring Cantinflas, but little else. Then along came Isabel "Coca" Sarli, the Latin erotic film star of the 1960s. La Coca had been Miss Argentina, had an ample chest, and loved to bath in everything liquid (including blood!) She starred in what were the most popular soft-porno Latin movies of the decade. You cannot expect too much from a movie called "Tropical Lust": it was exactly that, and all her movies could have been titled like that. La Coca caused a riot whenever she was. This time she is in Venezuela, she swims and bathes her naked body with sand (this is an euphemistic way to put it...) in beautiful Caribbean beaches, turns on every man in sight, and, in typical Catholic fashion, she has to pay for her "lustful acts." I wish I could see this movie again... It was funny but it lacked the humor that La Coca and husband Bo introduced in better vehicles, as "The Shoemaker's Wife", with veteran Argentinean comic Pepe Arias.
