Forget any Prejudice and Enjoy a Cult and Unusual Romantic Comedy
27 March 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Copacabana, the lesbian photographer Elvis "Elvira" (Simone Spoladore) is hired to deliver pizzas in the night shift in her motorcycle. Her first assignment is a delivery to the transvestite hairdresser Lady Madona "Adailton" (Igor Cotrim); however, when Elvis arrives at Madona's apartment, she discovers that her client has been beaten up and robbed by her lover João Tripé (Sérgio Bezerra), who took all her savings that she intended to use to produce a show.

Elvis befriends Madona and she invites Elvis to go and photograph her performance in a night-club. Elvis falls in love with Madona and sooner Elvis moves to Madona's apartment. Elvis accidentally takes pictures of João Tripé trafficking drugs and she sells them to a newspaper. João Tripé is arrested and he promises to revenge against Elvis.

Meanwhile, Elvis gets pregnant and they decide to have the baby. Madona finally has the money to rent a theater for the show she has dreamed on. But João Tripe has been released and seeks the couple out.

"Elvis e Madona" is a delightful love story between a young lesbian and a transvestite. The enjoyable romance is supported by magnificent performances and the chemistry of Igor Cotrim and Simone Spoladore and witty dialogs.

This low-budget movie has participate in more than fifty festivals and awarded with more than twenty prices. My advice is to forget any prejudice and enjoy a cult and unusual romantic comedy. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Elvis e Madona" ("Elvis and Madona")
