Yet another addition to that deplorable male fantasy on screen, namely that prostitution is a primary path to female empowerment and liberation.

In the end, the story feels a little thin and we never feel like we've gotten close to Hermila, but then she's someone who doesn't seem willing to reveal all to anyone so maybe Ainouz' tone is a good fit for the film.

...a well-observed slice of social realist cinema.

Gripping. Proves that subtlety is yet another of this fine filmmaker's strengths.

Ainouz obviously knows his turf, and is in full control of the material and his actors.

Guedes is electrifying, and so un-Hollywood you have to cheer for the continuing health of Brazilian cinema.

The steamy Brazilian drama Love for Sale takes a timeworn Hollywood premise -- down-on-her-luck woman turns hooker to survive -- and gives it an enthralling new twist.

Love for Sale has a deep sympathy for sexual free spirits in a rigid macho society.

The story's one-note -- once you know the title, you pretty much get the gist.

Os quadros compostos por Aïnouz freqüentemente revelam um cuidado que transcende a estética, preocupando-se principalmente com o significado das composições ou mesmo com a sensação pura e simples transmitida ao espectador.

Aïnouz is deeply but unpretentiously attuned to the rhythms of small-town living.

Apart from a few tour de force dance scenes, though, the rhythm tends to drag.
