Storyline

J.J. is a beautiful American journalist who's sent to Brazil, just as the famous Carnival begins, to investigate reports of brutal murders of street kids from favelas, the notorious Brazilian slums. The corrupt officials won't help, so through her producer's contacts she finds out where the next execution will happen on her own. Once there, she sees a vicious local crime boss called "Boca" or "Mouth", short for his full street name - "Mouth of Gold", a nickname he got for having rows of golden teeth in his mouth, saving the children and killing the executioners. Since the corrupt local government and police have no intentions of stopping the killings, she tries to get close to Boca and convince him to help her with her story and save more kids. Surprisingly, he turns out to be very charismatic and, although he accepts her offer, he starts playing mind games with her. This, combined with his brutal, but intriguing, life story, exotic harem and the heated sexualized atmosphere of the ... Written by Anonymous

hot, hot, hot
26 September 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie some time ago, and it is actually very interesting. The comment I wanted to make tho, is concerning the female lead, Rae Dawn Chong, who is just simply hot in this movie. I admit it, I watched the movie, because it was made by the notorious Zalman King, and he's most well known probably for his series on Showtime, Red Shoe Diaries. As a young straight man, I will say that my interest in the movie was purely to see a little flesh, but once you get into the movie, it's intriguing, and you just can't turn it off. The movie as a whole is very well put together, and the cast all give great performances. If you're looking for an erotic movie, it also works. Rae Dawn Chong, who I might just say does shed her clothes for this part, is sexy and exciting...especially her scenes with the male lead. It's not a movie for everyone, but if you want something different, it might just be your cup of tea, so to speak.
