Amoral and Tragic Tale About the Degradation of a Family
19 June 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After the funeral of her father Arnaldo (José Lewgoy), who committed suicide, Engraçadinha (Lucélia Santos) confesses to the priest the motives. On the engagement party of her cousin Sílvio (Luiz Fernando Guimarães) with Letícia (Nina de Pádua), Engraçadinha seduces him in the library, and later she ends her engagement with Zózimo (Daniel Dantas) and lies to Letícia, telling that she is pregnant. Letícia decides to tell Arnaldo what happened, and he says that the child can not be born. He exposes dirty secrets to Engraçadinha, and a tragedy is announced.

"Engraçadinha" is another adaptation of an erotic, amoral and tragic novel about the degradation of the family by Nelson Rodrigues, one of the best Brazilian dramaturge, to the cinema. The performances of Lucélia Santos, Luiz Fernando Guimarães, Nina de Pádua and José Lewgoy are magnificent. The beautiful title song is sang by the Brazilian singer Zizi Possi. Once again I regret that another great Brazilian film has not had a decent distribution. Even in Brazil, I have a very old VHS, bought from a rental, and this movie has not been released on DVD. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Engraçadinha" ("Cute")

Note: On 04 January 2011, I saw this film again on DVD released by Paramount.
