downbeat Brazilian sex melodrama, not that interesting
This review is of the dubbed US version of the film, entitled PRETTY BUT WICKED, which contains a few minutes of nude inserts. Overall, this B&W Brazilian film from 1963 is a melodramatic soap opera (in fact, it reminds me somewhat of a plot taken from a telenovela)where most all the female characters are raped and/or become prostitutes, and all the male characters are rapists or sleazes of one sort or another. Supposedly based on a play, it might have been interesting to see performed live on stage, but the film isn't very interesting and what does stand out from the tedium is unpleasant. To me at least, there's nothing really erotic about the (minimal) sex content. Try THE UNSATISFIED or THE PINK PUSSY or LOVE HUNGER or GAMES MEN PLAY if you're looking for a Latin American or Spanish sex melodrama.
