Classic Brazilian Erotica - Chada style...
17 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

This movie is part of the Pornochanchada film movement in Brazil, which was very popular cinema roughly between 1977-1985. At this time, these soft-porn movies were pushing the envelope of sexuality about as far as it could go. Virtually nothing was off limits in these films and they even explored taboos including explicit rape and misogyny, bestiality, necrophilia, water-sports, adolescent sex... you name it, they covered it. Volúpia de Mulher is not extreme and does not contain any of the previous content however it exemplifies "over- the-top" sexuality just the same. All the actresses, including Brazilian goddess Helena Ramos and Vanessa Alves are totally nude throughout most of the film along with the rest of the female cast. The sex is plentiful and explicit.

Beautiful Helena Ramos plays a hospital worker and her boyfriend is a painter who of-course paints nude models. Vanessa Alves's character must become a prostitute in order to help her child.

What makes this film and many other Brazilian erotic films from this era unique is the the fact the lead actresses would often play nearly their entire role nude. Yet still there exists a story, a plot and even some acting. Here we see lovely Vanessa Alves trying to make ends meet and ends up posing nude for the painter only to end up prostituting herself. She eventually ends up having a sexual affair with the painter.

Nude Brazilian bodies fill the screen and nicely illustrates what movie-goers in 1980s Brazil were taking in at the box office. Sex!
