Margarita Rosa de Francisco,
After stirring society by leaving her groom at the alter and going directly to a prostitution house, a young model becomes the city's most famous harlot, known as "Hilda the Hurricane", in the 50's Brazil. She could do fine if it wasn't for Malthus, a young novice said to be a saint, for whom she falls in love. However, the boy is kept under the strict, severe doctrine of Father Nelson, a conservative priest intolerant even to every minor sin. Things start getting harder when Roberto, Malthus' old friend and a communist reporter (the actual author of the story), tries to interview Hilda and disclosure the real reasons behind her radical change of mind. In the meantime, the middle-classes are terrified by the "leftist threat" in Brazilian politics. Written by

"Hilda Furacão" is a nice adaptation of Roberto Drummond's book into TV series. The performances and the settings are also good. Yet it has one fault: the story becomes (at times) boring and it loses its rhythm and the fact that the musics used are always the same help to create this impression. Nevertheless it has lots of good qualities.
