Storyline

In Copabacana, the pothead surfer Paulo Roberto 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, 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 that has a crush on Paulo. On the streets, the boy Waldick has just arrived from the country of Minas Gerais and idolizes the successful TV entertainer Fúlvio Fontes, 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 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 ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Refreshing and funny!
20 July 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Another non-English spoken movie that stands very well against any Hollywood movie - that's how I rate this movie.

Screenplay

This is a story about 4 absolutely different people whose lives get connected somehow. OK, I know the idea is not new but the way it is told and the how the flashback at the beginning starts making sense is very original. This story is both funny, realistic, sad and adventurous, it depicts several realities of Brazil but always with a refreshing and comic view...

The actors

Great. All of them. From the kid to the beautiful Brazilian babe, I think they all played a great part and really get the viewer into the movie.

The photography

I guess it's the weakest part of the movie, it's not bad, but it's not artistic (as I like). It has much of the feeling of "Cidade de Deus", you watch the whole movie without noticing any technique or lack of it..

Soundtrack Five stars :) For those who like Brazilian music, that is...
