Storyline

Women have been lured to Edgar's white slave market somewhere in the Amazon jungle of Brazil with promises of work. Edgar and his bisexual partner keep the girls in a corral and bring them into Edgar's Dionysian parties when customers come to peruse the merchandise. Edgar's nephew has fallen for one of the trapped girls and helps the girls make an escape. They escape into the jungle and use their "talents" to survive the jungle and the men who pursue them, while dealing with the tribulations associated with a wild gang of women. Written by J.F. Jacob

Helena: [addressing women in the corral] Everyone up! A few of you leave tomorrow morning. Do everything you can to please the buyers and you'll lead a life of luxury - jewels - and we all like jewels. And you never can tell, girls, you could meet the man of your life.

More Brazilian sleaze
14 October 2016 | by augustianSee all my reviews

Oswaldo de Oliveira made this film a couple of years after he made his awful Bare Behind Bars. One would think that he would have learned from his mistakes and he did, but unfortunately, not much. There is the obligatory nudity at various junctures and the rampant lesbianism that seems to take over any hot young girl who gets locked up with any other hot young girl, or who just happen to splash about in a jungle stream.

There is a plot of sorts to this film. The girls actually manage to escape but these girls just cannot strike it lucky, running foul of more human traffickers and an illegal mining operation. The one good guy gets some men to launch a rescue mission but they seem as useless as everyone else's acting ability.

It takes more than a lot of nudity to make a good film although some may say that lots of nudity makes a good film. Some scenes were overly long, especially the dancing scene that ended up as an orgy scene that also went on too long. If you want sleaze and do not mind the failures in all the other departments of film making, then give it a go.
