A Bold Tale of Juvenile Prostitution, Morbid Jealousy, Infidelity, Family Decadence, Pedophilia and Murder
18 May 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, the orphan girl Glorinha (Lídia Brondi) is raised by his conservative uncle Raul (Rubens Correa) in a rigid discipline. Glorinha has a childhood trauma since her mother Judite (Vera Fischer) committed suicide when she was two years old and her father Gilberto (Nuno Leal Maia) was sent to a mental institution. When her friend Nair (Zaira Zambelli), who is a young prostitute, invites Glorinha to work in the brothel of Madame Luba (Henriette Morineau) that is specialized in juvenile prostitution, Glorinha has a sex program with her neighbor, the old Congressman Jubileu (Sadi Cabral). Then Nair tells Glorinha that she is pregnant and need to make an abortion. Glorinha goes with Nair to the doctor (Jorge Dória), but there is an accident and Nair loses lots of blood.

Raul is called by the clinic and learns that Glorinha is prostituting herself. He summons the girl and decides to tell the truth about the death of her mother.

"Perdoa-me Por Me Traíres" is another bold tale of with juvenile prostitution, morbid jealousy, infidelity, family decadence, pedophilia and murder by Nelson Rodrigues. Vera Fischer is in the top of her beauty and has a great performance in the role of a woman with an abusive husband without self-confidence that believes that she is unfaithful since she is out of his league. Rubens Correa is also excellent in the role of a deranged brother, brother-in-law and uncle. The nymphet twenty-one year-old Lídia Brondi is really convincing in the role of a fifteen or sixteen year-old girl in her debut in the cinema. Unfortunately this talented actress finished her career in 1990 and graduated in Psychology, in a great loss to the Brazilian cinema and television. This polemic film is more recommended for audiences familiarized with the twisted world of Nelson Rodrigues. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Perdoa-me Por Me Traíres" ("Forgive me for Betraying me")
