A Great Homage to Brazilian Pop Culture of the 50s
26 March 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Brazil, in the 50s, `O Anjo' (`The Angel') was a very popular series presented in Radio Nacional. When I was a kid, I remember my parents and their friends making comments about the importance of this character for their pre-TV generation. This movie is a great homage to Brazilian pop culture of the 50s. The simple story is a great joke, showing exactly how the society got involved with this character, waiting anxiously for the next chapter of the story. The director Ivan Cardoso presented a funny story, very well produced, using a cast of important and prominent Brazilian actors, actresses and artists. However, for a foreigner not living in Brazil, the plot maybe sounds ridiculous. Even for young Brazilians, probably they will not understand the great joke this movie is. For example, in 1986, Roberta Close, the starlet of the strip tease, had the spots on her because indeed she was a transexual. Presently, she is married and lives in Europe, after a successful sex-change surgery. Isadora Ribeiro was one of the dancers of the introduction of a famous Brazilian TV show (`Fantástico') and `O Escorpião Escarlate' was her first movie. Monique Evans was one of the most beautiful Brazilian top models. This was the last movie of the showman and singer Ivon Cury. The choreography of the fights recalls those in Adam West's Batman. I have just noted that IMDB does not have the name of the characters, only the cast. Maybe this weekend, I will take note of most of their names (at least the most important ones) and submit them to IMDB. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): `O Escorpião Escarlate' (`The Crimson Scorpion')
