Storyline

Arriving in Rio to tour the local cosmetic surgery clinics, a respected British esthetic surgeon, Charlotte warns potential clients that rhinoplasty isn't the key to true happiness. Meanwhile, out on the streets, a visiting U.S. ambassador, William gives his handlers the slip, and disappears into the city's most dangerous favela- slum or shantytown, especially in Brazil. There, he befriends a free-spirited tour guide and his gorgeous partner, who open his eyes to a side of the city few tourists ever see.

I enjoyed it completely.
23 October 2012 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

It is rare that you see a film that is based in a brazil city. Just that alone makes this film very unique. And the people in it came from different parts of the world, that is also refreshing to watch. some of the actors are related in real life.

It is almost like a socialist film, because it showed you that in Rio, rich people live at nice places, poor people have to work as maids, live in ghettos.

It has some funny moments. It looks authentic to me, that is probably how people live in brazil. I also just enjoyed looking at those buildings, beaches, etc. It is better than a regular travel show.
