Storyline

Carla Perez (portrayed by Carla Fabianny as a child and by herself as an adult) lives with her father (Armindo Biao) and tuberculous mother (Juliana Calil) in a small, poor shack located somewhere in the middle of the sertao of Bahia. After her mother dies, Carla and her father decide to move to Salvador in order to achieve better life conditions. Carla, having an innate talent for dancing, soon is spotted by zany talent manager Pierre (Perry Salles) and his goon Beto (Josevaldo Oliveira); she is initially enthusiastic about her newly acquired fame, but soon discovers Pierre is an unscrupulous man that is only interested into the profits of exploiting her. Helped by her two vagabond friends, Bucha (Lucci Ferreira) and Chico (Lazaro Ramos), and by her boyfriend, Alexandre Pires (portrayed by himself), she garners the strength to fight Pierre back and live freely as she wishes.

The worst Brazilian movie ever!
28 June 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

If you think Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space" can't be beaten, think again. I dare say this in the only movie in movie history that gets close to Wood's achievement. It's so bad it's unique. Being a movie-addicted Brazilian, I have to say that this is by far the worst Brazilian movie ever made! The story, about a big-butted Brazilian dancer who becomes a celebrity, is probably the worst screenplay ever written too. The acting is hilarious: Carla Parez, the previously mentioned big-butted dancer has got to be the worst actress in my country's history. Technically speaking, this movie gets really close to Wood's achievement too. I know it's almost impossible to find it now, but I really think you should try. If you like "so-bad-they're-good" movies, try this one. I think you won't find anything better at it than this one!
