Storyline

In Bahia, a woman spurns a suitor she'd rejected thirty years before. In response, he and his sons sadistically kill her husband and sons. She gathers her three daughters and swears revenge, sending each to hire a killer who's to bring her the head of his victim. Maria Francisca is to hire Zé das Cobras, who eats snakes for courage and won't talk directly to women. Maria Rosa is to hire Chief Tenório, a righteous policeman currently on the hunt for a mad dog. Maria Pia is to hire Jesuíno Cruz, whom she must first spring from prison, and who cuts his victim's in half so that God and Satan get their share. Will the daughters succeed? Will justice be done?

Nothing works out here!
30 September 2002 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lame and ludicrous drama located in the Northern region of Brazil where a mother (Severo) and her three daughters (Lemmertz, Mariani and Mendonça) seeks revenge against the family that murdered their father/husband and brothers/sons. In this process, they came in contact with some strange figures like a professional killer called "Zé das Cobras" and some other weird parsonages. Bad dialogue, an almost amateur direction by Abranches and cardboard performances by the cast made this one a misfire in Brazilian modern cinema. I give this one a 4 (four).
