This dirty, sweaty Brazilian import is your usual cliché of exotic lust and animalistic jealousy. But it's pretty damn hot nonetheless. The story finds two strapping, working-class dudes caught in a love (well, sex, anyway) triangle with a hypersexual prostitute (the scorching Alice Braga, niece of Sonja Braga). Before long, our two best pals (one black, one white) are at one another's throats. The film has pretentions of social relevance, but it's mostly a beautifully sordid exploitation flick. In Portuguese with English subtitles. 98 minutes R.
