Storyline

Stark naked man comes out from the sea and begins to walk the streets, interfering in daily episodes, always in search of justice. He names himself Finis Hominis (The End of Man, in latin), and soon becomes sort of a modern Messiah, capable of performing miracles. An adulterous woman and a cheated husband are among his most faithful followers, as well as a group of hippies. Written by <lukejoplin@infolink.com.br>

Another alter-ego of director and actor Marins
4 May 2000 | by (Rotterdam) – See all my reviews

After Brazilian critics had told him he was only able to play his evil alter-ego Zé do Caixao (a.k.a. Coffin Joe), director and actor José Mojica Marins starred in another of his own films as a Messiah-like figure, apparently emerging from the sea, bringing kindness to the world around him.

What makes this movie stand out is the fact that Marins is seen walking naked through the streets of his home town, for which he could have been imprisoned at that time, a result of the harsh Brazilian dictatorship. However, state police never arrived on time at the scene to catch him in the act. It shows how far Marins would go to give that special edge to his films.

Although not the best of his films, still a piece of entertaining cult cinema.
