Top-notch Brazilian "pornchachada", 26 January 2013
Author: lazarillo from Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile

This is a "pornchachada" film, a bizarro 80's-era Brazilian genre that was part Latin America telenovela soap opera (except in Portugese rather than Spanish) and part softcore porn. I find this genre in general to be quite enjoyable because while these films always have plenty of hot sex scenes, they also have something BESIDES sex, mainly totally daft and demented--but usually pretty entertaining--soap opera-esque story lines. This kind of puts them in the same category as other genres I enjoy like the American late 60's/early 70's sexploitation films, the Italian films from the great 70's exploitation era, the classy but goofy French "Emmanuelle"-type films, and the Japanese "pinku" films.

With the possible exception of "Violence and Flesh" this is the best "pornchachada" I've seen. The plot is pretty stupid but also pretty fun--a young girl (Vanessa Alves) gets pregnant and gets kicked out of her parents' house when she refuses to marry. Her baby needs an operation and she has to resort to prostitution. She is menaced by her prostitute friends's pimp, but rescued by a tough transvestite (the character here resembles the character Dick Shawn played in the more well-known American 80's hooker-sploitation flick "Angel"). She is also befriended by a female doctor (Helena Ramos) and becomes the nude model/muse of her artist boyfriend.

This features perhaps the two sexiest actresses in "pornchachada". Helena Ramos (from the aforementioned "Violence and Flesh") was the slightly more voluptuous and mature-looking of the two (she kind of resembles Euro-cult actress Edwige Fenech). Vanessa Alves ("The Minor and the Rapist", "Love, Strange Love") was younger-looking and nubile, and often played naive virgins and teenage schoolgirls. They were both sexy as hell and above-average actresses, perhaps even by non-porn standards. The pair, as well as a couple other smoking hot Brazilian actresses, spend about 70 percent of their screen time butt naked and engaging in various softcore frolics, so heterosexual men at least certainly won't be bored, but what goes on BETWEEN the nude/sex scenes is pretty damn entertaining too. I'd recommend this.
