Great Film with a Sordid Story
12 July 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In São Paulo, the ambitious gambler André Albino de Souza (David Cardoso) is the driver and assistant of the wealthy alcoholic entrepreneur Dr. Leme (Benjamin Cattan), the owner of the Empresas Leme Reunidas. André is also the lover of the estranged wife of Dr. Leme, Raquel (Meyre Vieira). Dr. Leme is a frustrated man since he does not have a child with Raquel and he has two mistresses, his secretaries Jussara (Zilda Sedenho) and the alcoholic Anita (Helena Ramos) that has become addicted in booze by Dr. Leme and now is abused by him. They spend most of the time in a small ranch in the countryside and Dr. Leme brings the nightclub painter Marcelo (Agnaldo Rayol) to stay with them for a period. The maid Isaura (Ruthinea de Moraes) lives in the house with her daughter Dora "Dorinha" (Nicole Puzzi, a.k.a. Nicole Woodward) that has a crush on André.

Raquel convinces André to kill Dr. Leme, drowning him in the swimming pool simulating an accident since he is drunk most of the time, and travels to Europe to have an alibi. Meanwhile Dorinha seduces André and has sex with him. But soon she finds that she got pregnant and schedules with André to have an abortion. When André is ready to set in motion the scheme to kill Dr. Leme, he learns that Raquel is a manipulative woman and has a lover in London. André changes the plan and plot a scheme with Dorinha to use Dr. Leme's drunkenness and needy for a child to convince him that she had one nightstand with him and got pregnant. The plan works well until the day Raquel invites Anita to visit her.

"Possuídas pelo Pecado" is another great film directed by Jean Garret with a sordid story by his partner Ody Fraga and him that follows the style of the Brazilian playwright, journalist and novelist Nelson Rodrigues. All the characters, with exception of Isaura, are morally degraded. The cast has good performances, highlighting Helena Ramos in the role of an abused woman addicted in alcohol that has hit the rock bottom. This movie is the debut of the Brazilian actress Nicole Puzzi, using the alias "Nicole Woodward"), one of the hottest women in the 70's and 80's. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Possuídas pelo Pecado" ("Possessed by Sin")
