A Supernatural Erotic Comedy by José Mojica Marins
2 March 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In São Paulo, the playboy Aquiles (Vic Barone) is completely bankrupted, with the legal officer (José Carvalho) and the police officer (David Hungaro) knocking on his front door charging his debts. However, his loyal butler Vitório (Chaguinha) protects him telling that he is not in the apartment.

When Aquiles reads on the newspaper that the three son-in-laws of the wealthy Leocárdio (João Paulo) are missing in a plane crash, Vitório tells that he knows the family since he had a love affair with the housemaid Marieta (Vic Militello).

The widows Dina (Vosmarline), Bebê (Zélia Diniz) and Lena (Lorenia Machado) live a reclusive with their father and their repressive Aunt Dadá (Helena Samara). Aquiles decides to visit them during the night disguised as their husbands Juju, Lalau and Danúzio to lure them and get money for him.

However, when the three women get pregnant, their father summons a doctor (Walter Portella) that is puzzled with the mystery and suggests Leocárdio to invite Father Levedo (Renê Mauro) to exorcise the ghosts. The situation of Aquiles gets complicated when Danúzio returns home and the real ghosts of Juju and Lalau decide to punish him.

"Como Consolar Viúvas" is a supernatural low-budget erotic comedy by José Mojica Marins using the pseudonym of J. Avelar. The story is silly, but there are funny moments and specially a joke with the true identity of the director when Aund Dadá says: "Entrem, alunazinhas do Zé do Caixão. Este filme de terror está ficando complicado". ("Come in, little students of Zé do Caixão. This horror film is getting complicated"). My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Como Consolar Viúvas" ("How to Console Widows")
