Storyline

Raquel is a girl, adopted by an upper middle class family, who rebelled at 17 and left her family and studies at a traditional college in São Paulo to become a call girl. Shortly after starting work, she decided to write a blog about her experiences. Since some clients thought she looked like a surfer she adopted the name "Surfistinha" which means little surfer girl. This blog became a sensation, and quickly became one of the most popular blogs in Brazil. Becoming famous, her life changed significantly. She went on to be interviewed on Brazilian talk shows similar to Oprah and David Letterman, all the while continuing her blog about her racy exploits. She wrote a book about these experiences: "O Doce Veneno Do Escorpião". Written by William Gonçalves and Matt Hisle

The Rise and Fall of a Whore
19 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

Raquel (Deborah Secco) is a middle-class teenager that dreams on the independence of her foster family. She runs away home and works in a brothel of Celeste (Clarisse Abujamra) using the pseudonym of Bruna. When she meets Carol (Guta Ruiz), she leaves the brothel with her friend Gabi (Cristina Lago) and she rents an expensive apartment and starts working as a call girl using the nickname Bruna Surfistinha. She also starts a blog, writing her experiences, ratings and clients' confidences. She uses drugs and the downfall forces her to start working as a hustler and in the red-light district. Later she publishes a best- seller about her experiences.

"Bruna Surfistinha" tells the rise and fall of a notorious Brazilian whore in a glamorized way. The sexy and hot Deborah Secco makes this film worth, but I do not understand why producers choose to tell the story of a prostitute instead of many other important Brazilian women. For me, the only intention is to make money with the exploitation of the body of Deborah Secco.

I had the chance to see a pornographic film where the nasty Bruna Surfistinha is the lead star and I was disgusted with this hooker. "Bruna Surfistinha" explores the sensuality and naive way of Deborah Secco that has nothing to do with Bruna and omits her work in the porn industry. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Bruna Surfistinha" ("Bruna Little Surfer")
