Fun, but needed a better actor for the main role
30 November 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rubem Fonseca is a genius of Brazilian literature. Author of books like "Agosto", he understands the soul of the carioca man. Mandrake is an underground lawyer expert in cases of blackmailing and extortion who acts mostly as a negotiator. But Marcos Palmeira's acting is weak, his speech is artificial and so is his facial expression. Mieli is fine as Wexler, the old Jewish lawyer, Mandrake's partner. Maria Luísa Mendonça is a great actress and plays her role very well. The episodes themselves are interesting and show a poorly known part of life in Rio de Janeiro. The underworld of prostitutes, transvestites, sex clubs and the upper world of luxury mansions and socialites merge into a plot of intrigue and lots of money.
