Great Brazilian Film-Noir

In Rio Negro, São Paulo, the powerful and wealthy industrial Henrique Ribeiro (Reginaldo Farias) gets married to the desired famous actress Cláudia Toledo (Sílvia Pfeifer). Every night, Henrique finds excuses to leave Cláudia alone on the bed, and when she decides to investigate if Henrique has a mistress, she surprisingly discloses that he is gay. He proposes a deal to her: if she keeps the appearance of a good marriage for two years, he would give a fortune to her. When Cláudia has an affair with the construction foreman Tomás (Alexandre Frota), he convinces Cláudia that Henrique shall be killed and plots a plan. After the death of Henrique, Cláudia finds that he had embezzled millions of dollars from his company and sold all his real estates to his partner Junqueira (Cláudio Correia e Castro) including their house. The detective Ciro (Stênio Garcia), in charge of the case of the disappearance of Henrique, maintains with perseverance the investigation of the suspects Cláudia and Tomás. When Cláudia sees Henrique in her house in the night, he freaks out, leading the inquiry into another direction.

The debut of the beautiful Brazilian model Sílvia Pfeifer in the career of actress is a great film-noir. The intriguing story has many twists and excellent performances of Sílvia Pfeifer, Reginaldo Farias, Stênio Garcia and the presently porno-actor Alexandre Frota. In some moments, I recalled "Body Heat", and I regret only the moralist end of "Boca do Lixo". I saw a compilation of 165 minutes running time on VHS, where many details are lost, but the mainstream of the story is preserved. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Boca do Lixo" ("Mouth of Garbage")
