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

Oh, the smell of State handouts!
11 August 2017 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

The movie shouts at every scene: somebody else, like the State, paid for this movie. It reminds me of crappy popular European movies from the 1970s, all made with State money for the mindless pride of politicians and bureaucrats: our nation is so good! Everything is a missed hit about this movie.

The "kids" are much older. And I do not care about the actor's ages. They can be 95 years old as far as I care. But they certainly do not look the given age. See above: some useless actors were used, not because they fit the bill, but because they have enough experience and relationships that the syndicate or some politician did the casting. And how come the fresh flower from a middle class family has fake breasts already healed? Another proof of the power of prayer!

Each and every scene is slow. The actors are moving too slow. The camera is moving too slow. I doubt this story can fill the usual 90 minutes. And it's almost two hours long! Because the wages were certain, nobody bothered to learn anything about the life of the characters. Probably most could not be bothered to read the entire book. Now, Brazil has enough backwards religious communities so some might be surprised about the concept of prostitution or homosexuality. But these are actors. The year is 2011. And there is such thing as the internet. And not only the actors are bad and rigid, but the whole team is junk. Take the scene from the beginning, when the girl is introduced to her flat mates. They are all, like Jesus at the last supper, turned towards the camera. And the newcomer? Easy! She finds a place left for her and turns for the camera.
