Nude businessman follows Murphy's Law in Rio
1 April 2000 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This very original and entertaining comedy is set in turn of the century Rio. A serious businessman is locked out of his residence, in the buff, and Murphy's Law kicks in. Featuring very Brazilian humor, which plays well universally, THE NAKED MAN follows this guy's exploits through Rio's chaotic traffic and street life. Aided by hilarious performances by famous local comedians, Maria Zilda Bethlem and Lucia Verissimo, this film has been a festival favorite (in Miami, it played at two separate festivals), and is now available on NTSC video. Enjoy it.
