Storyline

Lisbela is a young woman who loves going to the movies. Leléu is a con man, going from town to town selling all sort of things and performing as master of ceremonies for some cheesy numbers, such as the woman who gets transformed into a gorilla. He gets involved with Linaura, a sexy and beautiful woman who happens to be the wife of the most frightening hitman of the place. The hitman finds out his wife's affair and goes after Leléu, who has to leave in a hurry. In another town, he meets and falls instantly in love with Lisbela, who is engaged to Douglas, a hillbilly who tries hard to pass for a cosmopolitan Rio de Janeiro dweller.

Lowest quality soap-opera.
8 April 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Amazing!

Do not waste your time with this amazingly empty, boring movie.

Comparable to the worst mass-produced Hollywood crap I've seen.
