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

No time is lost when Deborah Seco decides to undress
21 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Bruna" Marcus Baldini - As if we need excuses to waste almost a couple of hours watching Deborah Seco undressing and doing it like it's hot! The story captivated me for being based on real facts that I personally didn't know. I found it interesting only because of a certain verbal gymnastics that keeps me laughing in the lexicon of the Brazilian Portuguese and the lightness in which the most serious subjects can be portrayed by Brazilian directors, sometimes even in an ethereal fashion. But this movie is worth only for the scenes with Deborah Seco, just because the emotional dimension of it is sometimes lost and one never gets to understand what leads the main character to taking such a shaky turn, one does not understand what kind of analysis is made and for trying to tell a story sometimes the film gets so close to wanting to tell too much without showing great substance. I give it a 7 out of 10, almost pulling in a 6, but our friend Deborah Seco saved the movie (although at the beginning of the movie she acting very stuck up and out of character, perhaps because they wanted her to go through an age that simply is nor hers any more).
