Not bad at all
2 January 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This is indeed a movie that may catch the viewer's attention for the over 2 hours duration. The story of a high-class hooker being rented to persuade a small town politician to approve a millionaire yet not so honest building project while being involved with one of the cops in charge of the investigation may not be the most original plot, for sure. Still, the movie is quite well done, it has pace, some action, characters are developed enough and of course, the lead actress shows a lot of flesh. This flesh thing, which may be one of the main reasons to attract the male crowd (and the movie is being advertised mostly based on that not so minor item), was an interesting surprise, at least for a female viewer: it's not that gratuitous. Well, the girl is a hooker, and you should understand what "arguments" she has to drive men crazy as she's supposed to (and she does have plenty of those), still, the sex scenes are not graphic at all, and in fact you never see any real (in a cinematic sense, of course) interaction between her and her partners: the most revealing scene is a one-woman-show. This said, the acting is very acceptable, with Nicolau Breyner (the Mayor who's the Call Girl victim) standing from the crowd, a nice job from the other actors, and even the model-turned-actress Soraia Chaves defends her role. Particularly interesting are the dialogs (albeit all the swearing), which sound very natural and realistic for what Portuguese cinema has gotten us used to. For an American-style commercial movie, it stands its ground.
