Glimpses of the Chaotic Life in Copacabana
23 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Copabacana, the pothead surfer Paulo Roberto (Marcelo Faria) is the son of a politician with a dysfunctional family that spends the day surfing and smoking grass. The family maid has a son, the smalltime drug dealer China (Jonathan Haagensen), who spends most of the time in the beach with Paulo. In the building across the street lives the sexy Amazon-born babysitter Rita de Cássia (Maria Flor) that has a crush on Paulo. On the streets, the boy Waldick (Netinho Alves) has just arrived from the country of Minas Gerais and idolizes the successful TV entertainer Fúlvio Fontes (Evandro Mesquita), who worked as a street vendor when was a boy. When Rita meets Paulo and tells him that she is virgin, Paulo leaves her telling that he likes whores. Rita visits the pimp Tim Mais (Márcio Libar) and asks him to work as a prostitute using the nickname of Mystery to draw the attention of Paulo Roberto. Mystery becomes a hit among the clients of Tim. Their lives entwines when Paulo steals a can of marijuana that China had found in the sea, while Paulo Roberto, Tim Mais and Waldick fall in love for Mystery.

"O Diabo a Quatro" glimpses the chaotic life in the contemporary Copacabana through the lives of dwellers with different origins and backgrounds, from the underground and the corruption in the police. In this regard, it is remarkable how the screenplay is able to follow the daily lives not only of the lead characters, but also of many support characters, being very generous with the actors and actresses in 108 minutes running time. However, the genre is quite pointless, shifting from comedy to drama maybe trying to please and catch a greater number of viewers. The soundtrack is excellent, with suitable Brazilian songs. Maria Flor has an astonishing body, but she is not convincing as a person that was born in Amazon. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Diabo a Quatro" ("The Devil at Four")
